In a show function, the `this` variable is assigned to the Javascript object
of the design doc. Therefore if your design doc is

    { "_id": "_design/default",
      "mustache_lib": "<insert mustache.js CommonJS file here>",
      "an_html_template": "This is a web page called {{name}}",

Then you can load mustache via CommonJS in the show function.

    function(doc, req) {
        var mustache = require("mustache_lib");
        var template = this.an_html_template;
        return {body: mustache.to_html(template, {name: "Hi!"});

That is the idea, note I did not test this code just yet but I got it from
working code I use.
