Dunno. I think it's a bit odd to suggest that CouchDB could ever be  
for non-developers.

There's a lot of activity at the moment, from various sides, to make  
CouchDB ubiquitous. UbuntuOne is a good example. But in the case where  
a user is using CouchDB because it is used for some application they  
have, that does not mean that they should care that it uses CouchDB.  
SQLite is used by, but that doesn't mean that users  
care about SQLite. CouchDB is a tool in your toolchain so that you can  
build user applications. CouchDB itself is not a user application.  
Again, if someone built a non-JSON GUI for CouchDB, then that would be  
a user application - but the CouchDB core is still just a tool. Maybe  
I'm talking shit. I'm sure I will be corrected if I am.
