Subject Re: Futon.Next Proof of Concept

Awesome that this is kicking off proper again, So one thing I meant to
bring up earlier, but being in this thread scares me :)

One really great feature that would need to be thought about and baked in
from very early on, is using futon to control multiple instances of
CouchDB, not just the CouchDB in which it is currently residing.I have
various instances of CouchDB servers around and I would like to manage them
from a single place (drag and drop replication yo)

I say that with a selfish hat on, I would love to be working on Futon.Next
instead of reinventing (my third) futon replacement to have it working for
PouchDB (Puton!)

And yeh, as we seen with the last futon revamp it should most definitely be
in a seperate repository from a full couchdb fork, it tells people they
have to build couch to work on futon, its a nightmare when working on stuff
inside couch and trying to dogfood the new UI etc etc
