Welcome Sean, Brad!

- Transform CouchDB JSON doc / view results into HTML page or HTML fragments.

- Custom JSON output

It's good to have while it doesn't improves state of things.

Would be awesome. If it will, I'll add few more features:

- Run show/list function against specific doc / view
- Allow customize request params / body / method / headers for preview pane
- Show some diagnostic box for request / response during render within
preview pane (raw url, response code, headers, request time).

P.S. Will update, filter and validate_doc_update functions support comes after?
