You're making me want to push out the next Rough Cut for the CouchDB
book, without polishing it. I've been working on documentation there.
Aside from that, the best place to look is the Futon TestSuite.
Checkout share/www/script/test/list_views.js and show_documents.js for
example usage.

I think a wiki page is in order... I'll see what I can do.
