If you're including jquery.couch.js in your couchapp it's probably good to
stay up to date with it. Since Futon uses it, it's included with CouchDB. If
it doesn't exist already, you could actually modify your .ini file to create
a static path to the system-included copy.

In general, though, this shouldn't be a problem. Since jquery.couch.js uses
the normal HTTP interface to CouchDB it should work against any release of a
particular major version. In other words, we don't plan to break anything
until 2.0. You just happened to stumble upon a bug that was recently fixed.
Sorry about that!

Of course! I'm glad the fix was so easy.
