couchdb users,

I'm thinking of using a couchapp for an upcoming project, but there is
one capability that I'm unsure of.

I need a database that anyone can post to, but only admin can read
from. The requirement is to allow users to post personal information
that other users cannot see. If I understand the couchdb permissions
model correctly, for a given db, anyone who can create documents can
also read documents.

Is there a way to do this with a couchapp? It seems a shame to have to
add "middleware" just to get this one capability.

thanks,

--Jonathan
