I'd be interested to see more details about your error, and what you
are trying to do generally. I can't think of a reason why CouchDB
would have problems storing your data. The attachment API is generally
useful for larger files that you wouldn't want to access wrapped in
JSON - you should be able to solve your problem without resorting to

Can you give a specific example of the data you are storing and how
you are attempting to do it? Maybe posting an example IRB session to would be helpful. There very well could be some edge cases
in CouchRest that I haven't run into yet, and seeing your code in
action will help.
