I also think keeping view servers as simple as possible makes sense.
Otoh is it possible to make CouchDb evenly distribute jobs to several
spawned couchjs view server instances?
(and the OS scheduler would make sure that the different view server
processes ends up running on different cores I guess... though of course the
'bottleneck' might be the I/O anyways)
