Subject [1.3.0] Deprecate e4x
Date Fri, 30 Nov 2012 16:05:49 GMT
Hey all,

The SpiderMonkey folks are slowly retiring* E4X. Since it is 
an advertised feature of CouchDB, we should be proactive 
about this. I’d like the 1.3.0 release notes to include a 
note about E4X support being deprecated and on track to be 
removed in the future (without a specific date or release set).

Does anyone have any objections to this?
