yes historical reason, couchapp is old. The script was written before
the term was coined.

This have been already discussed in the past and even recently on the
couchapp ml when I asked, and the conclusion was that this change
wasn't needed.  I don't think it's really needed anyway, it's a little

applications embedded in couch, the other a tool :)
