> This is a proposal for a new feature in CouchDB : allow a randomization of rows in a
view response. We can for example add a randomize query parameter...
> This request would probably not return the same results for the same request.
> As an example :
> GET /db/_design/doc/_view/example :
> {
>   ..
>   rows: [
>     {key: 1 ...},
>     {key: 2 ...},
>     {key: 3 ...}
>   ]
> }
> GET /db/_design/doc/_view/example?randomize=true :
> {
>   ..
>   rows: [
>     {key: 2 ...},
>     {key: 3 ...},
>     {key: 1 ...}
>   ]
> }
> GET /db/_design/doc/_view/example?randomize=true :
> {
>   ..
>   rows: [
>     {key: 1 ...},
>     {key: 3 ...},
>     {key: 2 ...}
>   ]
> }
> This is a feature hard to implement client-side (but by reading all doc ids and use client-side
random function). It's implemented by the RDBMS from ages, probably for the very same reasons
: if we should read all the rows client-side to random-select some of them, performances are
awful.
