I reduced the chunk size (in the code at the above URL), reducing the  
time between couchdb requests, and this seems to have resolved the  
issue (that is, I'm up to 35k documents, 100 at a time, without a  
timeout now, which is many more requests than worked before).

This leads me to believe that it's more of a couchdb-python issue  
(maybe couchdb-python is keeping the socket to couchdb open for the  
whole time, and it's timing out in between?). Maybe couchdb-python can  
do keep-alives in a background thread?
