    > If I make /_bulk_get compatible with PouchDB
    
    As @dholth said, his implementation is a *PouchDB plugin*. PouchDB does not depend on
it.
    
    > A top level array is a little better for streaming. 
    
    The streaming stuff (pouchdb-replication-stream, pouchdb-load, socket-pouch, etc.) is
a parallel effort . I consider it a long-term plan, whereas `_bulk_get`/`_bulk_revs` is the
short-term fix.
    
    > Well, I'm fine to break compatibility,
    
    The stance of PouchDB (and I think @daleharvey would agree) is that we will implement
whatever CouchDB implements. CouchDB is our gold standard, not RCouch or Couchbase.
    
    That being said, if Couchbase has a solution that handles errors (even if a bit inelegantly),
then I think we should prefer their version instead of inventing a third version. RCouch has
few users (AFAIK), but Couchbase Mobile is pretty popular for iOS/Android development. So
we would benefit by tapping in to their ecosystem.
    
    PouchDB's only point of contention with the Couchbase API is that we need a JSON response
rather than a multipart/mixed response. Basically if the client says `Accept: application/json`,
then the server has to return JSON.
