Hey James,

This sounds *awesome* & I don't think we discussed an approach yet.

I guess the place we would like to end up looks something like this:

- OTP layout for all apps
- additional refuge functionality either in core (or as a plugin if it makes sense)
- bigcouch goodness under the hood

But I am not clear what the first steps should be here.

Paul, Bob, Benoît, any thoughts on how we can break this down into smaller steps?

James if you have some code to share feel free to put it up on github. You may want to discuss
with your employer if a company or an individual contributor licence would be appropriate.
I'm happy to help off list with sorting this out if required.
