I would be ok with that, it doesn't seem to be a big problem in
practice.  (Although it's strange to me that all the infrastructure is
there to have document revisions, but we have no control over how much
history we want couchdb to keep.  Seems like a relatively
straightforward next step).

Can you be a bit more explicit about what you mean?

It sounds like you say I should re-write CouchDB's revisioning/history
approach in my app just to get around the fact that couchdb has no
controls for history.  I might as well build it on top of anything else
than couchdb no ? :)
