I was about that there is no reason to bump major version just because
we decide to remove some javascript library that doesn't change the
behaviour of the main project. It will be a bit awkward to read
release notes for CouchDB 2.0 where nothing changed, but builtin
javascript client based on some thirdparty framework was removed.
Semver is semver, but it should be used wisely.
