make it possible to have a list of blog entries and the tag could in the same HTML page (e.g.
like daylight running lights does it), but without needing AJAX (which is important for some

For the "find max number, then scale to that number" use case, there is still the atomicity
issue, which will probably not appear often. To get atomicity, we would need reduce chaining,

Or, if we are only interested in the max number of the returned list, the view list could
calculate the scaling factor and then scale itself, which is not the couchdb way, but it's
