This idea is implemented in [couch_normalizer|]
project which acts as CouchDB plugin.

> A Document Runner would provide functionality to run a transform function across all
documents in the database. This way you could do maintenance and migrations, with incurring
a bunch of http overhead.
> The idea was originally floated on the couchdb-user mailing list.
> Requirements
> Ability to specify a job in a view-server like context (Javascript other language function)
and have it run across all docs (like a view is), but with the additional ability to write
back to the document (through the http api, so we don't have to add a socket-based update
> Caveat:
> We may not be able to guarantee that runner functions see each document only once, so
functions need to be aware only to modify documents that require modification.
> Uses
> Changing the format of a timestamp across all docs
> Removing sensitive fields before replicating to another jurisdiction
> (View runner... slightly different) Materializing the results of group=true reduce queries
into a dataset for further map/reduce processing (a common pattern in Hadoop)
