Correct. This is something I've argued against recently and have
drafted email outlining my reasons, but I'm gonna hold back on that
until I can actually write a little code in that direction. There are
a couple different options depending on how much we want to decouple
them, but it touches a lot of things in the code and is a conversation
for a thread all its own. There is no reason, going forward, why this
*must* be the behavior.

But, to return to the checksum issue. There is checksumming of views
going on. For this reason you can do nifty things like have a
"staging" version of your design document where you build new versions
of your views without replacing the old one. All you need to do is
create a design document in the same database with a different name.
When you later update the contents of your "production" design
document to match the indexes will already be in place.
