Use the bulk-insert API to improve speed. The way you're doing it,  
every record being added is a separate transaction, which requires a  
separate HTTP request and flushing the file.

(I'm a CouchDB newbie, but I don't think the point of CouchDB is  
speed. What's exciting about it is the flexibility and the ability to  
build distributed systems. If you're looking for a traditional  
database with speed, have you tried MySQL?)
