That's not how I read this requirement. My understanding was that
Cloudant wanted the ability to turn off features at build
configuration time. It would affect which js files get pushed. That
means it would either effect which files grunt.js processes, or it
would affect what files get listed in some couchapp manifest.

If runtime configuration is necessary, that should be articulated more
clearly as a requirement, but I worry that this starts to balloon into
more of a CMS agree with Alexander that it starts to look like we've
gone too far.
