Well, I realized that the existing API mentioned in the Wiki 
( is almost the same I described (not 
surprisingly, being based on similar assumptions).
And that just documenting a simple refactoring of couch_http.erl should 
be enough to provide an Erlang API.

This way I concluded that using for now erlcouch , then waiting for a 
refactoring of couch_http.erl should allow me to do the minimu work to 
upgrade, when Damien will refactor the code and expose the API.

I am ready to do the documentaion effort, if needed.

My plan  however has a drawback: erlcouch is not working currently 
against the trunk :-( Any hints?
