Yes, being able to write show functions is nice, but you'll have to 
request another URL if you want the document in a non-JSON format, which 
is not really the REST way of doing business.

Of course you can just always request the show function URL, also for 
JSON output, but AFAIK the output of show functions is not prerendered 
by CouchDB (yet?), so performance-wise it might be better to go to the 
document-URL itself directly if you want JSON. Are there any plans to 
(maybe optionally) prerender the output of show functions? Maybe this is 
even possible for list functions if heads, rows and tails are 
prerendered separately?
