>             Project: CouchDB
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Database Core
>    Affects Versions: 1.2
>            Reporter: Jason Smith

> Today I received a bug report from a user who thought CouchDB might be relaxing and evaluate
an arithmetic expression in the config. (That makes sense, since it seems to evaluate erlang
terms elsewhere.)

> It would be nice for CouchDB to validate config input, particularly when bad values permanently
take it offline. (In this case, it returns 500 for all subsequent requests.)
> IMO, a good bang-for-buck is to have three basic value types:
> 1. String
> 2. Erlang tuple
> 3. Integer
> And each setting knows what type it must be.
