No, I'm not saying this. Where do you read that?

I'm stating that there is something fishy with "couchdb-python". As an
example, I taking this line of code

self.resource.delete_json(id, rev=headers['etag'].strip('"'))

and I wonder about "delete_json()" - which does not make sense. I
would expect  something like

self.resource.delete(id, rev=headers['etag'].strip('"'))

because a document's representation does not matter when deleting it.
The original code is equivalent with

 $ curl -H "content-type: application/json" -X DELETE  ${url}

Providing that mime-type is unnecessary however, cause this works fine:

$ curl -X DELETE  ${url}
