Subject Re: Nano and Futon CLI

I use nano and CouchDB every day, both for work and personal projects.

I would love to see nano become part of the ASF under the CouchDB flag.
I think standardizing libraries for various languages would be a great
benefit to CouchDB itself.

Just my two cents as a developer / sysadmin using both.
