Another option would be to start with treating the Elexir Query Server
like the Erlang Query Server and keep it off by default and with full
access to the internals, so people could opt into it, if their environment
allows for it.

Sandboxing could be a step on top or later.

I for one would like to see native Elexir support for Views in CouchDB :)
