Chris, what did you think about my idea of attaching/making available  
_rev information for views?

Basically if we could get a _rev for every key-value output, could get  
an array of them (however massive) for the "root" of a particular  
view, and a "top" _rev for the view, it would make tracking changes  
much easier. I have been messing around and think it would be pretty  
easy to make a decent "sync" for remapping purposes if that info was  

Obviously that's not as nice as having it built in, but it would be a  
lot better than the blind system we have now. I'm thinking of  
requesting it as a feature, would like to know if you think it's a  
good idea or not, since you've obviously been playing around with it  
as well.
