I believe even a HEAD request will work, in which case there is no need to specify a limit,
since there will be no response body. :o)

Just execute a regular request against the view. Even if you disconnect and
ignore the response the build should finish.
It's wise to pass ?limit=1 (I don't know if 0 works without checking) to
minimize the work that Couch does to generate a response (if you don't care
about it).
