I also like what Joan cited below, and agree that reinforcing replication
is important. "Apache CouchDB: The database that {replicates|syncs}."

Thanks, Joan! Very important topic, tagline definitely might be better.

What I think:

* Apache in front is too loud and captures too much attention.
* No need to say it‘s a database – ‘CouchDB’ brand is self-explaining in
this case
* The term ‘replication’ is the most important part, and it sounds better
than ‘sync’
* HTTP access is a core feature
* All abovementioned DBs do not support attaches in a manner CouchDB does –
so as for me attachments are important.

So something like
CouchDB is HTTP-accessible distributed key-value with mapReduce.
