Improving the view server protocol is a great idea, but it is appropriate
for a 2.0 timeframe? I would think it would make more sense in a 3.0
timeframe, given 2.0 is all about merging forks, not writing new features
entirely from scratch.

Adding mvcc for _security is a great idea (happily, Cloudant have done so very recently, so
I will be pulling that work over soon).

A better view server protocol is also a great idea.
