Subject Re: CouchDB Document Size

Are you sure this is the case? I would be surprised if every write
increased the .couch file by 4096 bytes, but totally unsurprised if
the only increases you see in the size of your .couch file are 4096
because that's probably your filesystem block size. However, many
small documents should fit into such a block.
