I’d like to keep it, but the current version isn’t cluster-able (Robert
says), so we’d need a new way of implementing this.

When we discussed this we differentiated two different points in time:

  1. When is BigCouch ready to merge into Apache CouchDB?
  2. When do we ship it?

I’d say 1. can live without _purge as long as we get it back for 2. or 
we decide as a group that we don’t want it anymore, and we can discuss
that as part of COUCHDB-1765 or sub-issues.

There are a few more features like this (vhosts e.g.) that need to go
through a similar phase. We mainly made the distinction of requirements
so make sure we get the BigCouch merge work in as soon as possible, so
the current work gets stale again.
