Alternatively, you could use some form of distributed voting  
algorithm, but that's a lot more work and you have to be careful to  
get a correct implementation.

Given the nature of CouchDB, and the fact that it already provides the  
interface to the data cloud, providing generic core services such as  
distributed voting with layered services such as global uniqueness  
indexes, would be a logical extension.

It's amazing that the one side of the conversation that survived is "I  
don't know art, but I know what I like". The reply from the artist was  
"Madam, so does a cow".
