Indeed, there's a certain elegance in doing things this way which  
makes me suspect it's going to turn out to be the right solution.

However, I'd like to hear views from others working with couch -  
especially criticisms/nullifications of my pros/cons points for each  
option ..

The outcome of the previous discussion on this thread seemed to be in  
favour of the use of a "followers" table which I thought was a pretty  
bad idea in CouchDB. I'd love to hear some defences of that, maybe  
someone can tell me what I'm missing...
