I assume that at least for the next release Fauxton will not be ready and we haven’t yet
resolved how to actually do the transition (https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-1954)
I strongly suggest we do in fact add another special clause to that function to support both
/_utils/fauxton/ and /_utils/fauxton
