Hi Nikolai

Awesome. I will be able to play with the later today & will definitely
put in some patches for a quick way for people to repackage their
couchapps - bring on the source!

Some interesting stats from github download pages -
- couch 1.20 trunk build - downloaded 106 times in 3 weeks
- couch 1.1 trunk - 23x
- couch 1.0.2 from release - 48x
- your wincouch 1.0.0 - 55x in 20h
- wincouch 7x in 9h

So I think we have hit the nail on a sweet spot for people here. Any
feedback from what people were using it for, or wanted?

I'm looking forwards to contributing a lot to this & keeping it up to
date with the main couch trunk.
