Since googling let me empty, and I'm in a bit of a hurry -- I'm rewriting
couchdb-dump and load so that instead of trying to create one bigA mime
object in memory , I'm breaking it out document by document and stuffing it
in a zip file.  A side effect is that dumps are faster and the files are
smaller.  I've finished the dump portion and will start on the load in the
morning.  While I'm crawling through this does anyone have any requests for
features or ammendments to the current couchdb-dump and/or couchdb-load
