>                 URL:
>             Project: CouchDB
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: View Server Support
>    Affects Versions: 1.2, 1.3
>            Reporter: Stephane Alnet
> As described in COUCHDB-1155, if a _list function generates dynamic content that is not
idempotent with regards to the parameters used by to generate the Etag, there is no valid
way for that function to specify an alternate Etag.
> The present request is to allow such functions to either (a) send back an Etag header
which will supersede the Etag header computed by the view server and will be used as the opaque
Etag string of RFC2616 section 3.11 [1], or (b) allow the function to send back some value
that will be combined with the other (existing) Etag parameters to compute the Etag header,
or (c) send back a flag indicating that the Etag header should be computed based on the output
of the function, not the regular Etag parameters.
