There are definitely limitations, pulling info in to the page that isn't in your database
isn't doable, _list and _show are pretty slow so you're limited to single page apps if you
want to keep things really fast. 

For simple things, nothing is simpler than a couchapp, but as your app gets more complex you're
going to start doing backflips to get it to fit in to the couchapp model.
