Actually :

The difference is that couch_changes is not its own app like it is in

because i ported the latest but non released in that branch yet of the
code. I also not integrated the usage of barrel, to easy any merge. So
nothing really new in that split. I just simplified it compared to rcouch
(if you see in the history this is how it started anyway) in view of
speeding the final merge and propose other changes as patches later.

ok... I will forget to answer to that part. I will rather focus on
finishing these latest patches.
