Hi Jan,

I just watched the video of your talk at racklabs, and when you
introduced the idea of revision numbers, you made a remark mentioning
revision control.

I'm at the very beginning of learning about couchdb.  I want to make

Are they meant to be used as a way to handle lots of nearly parallel

That was a really informative talk, by the way.
