The main question for CouchDB's code is the stdio json protocol. Once
that is nailed down, attaching various indexers should be
straightforward. There are some design questions here, mostly to do
with consistency with the rest of CouchDB. Eg: the view servers are
fed a json array followed by a single newline, but search expects an
object followed by two newlines. I haven't looked at the
DbUpdateNotificationProcess but we should try to make that the same as

I'm not sure if there are opportunities for code reuse here, but if
there are we should take them.
