If concurrent login means connection from differents devices with the
same login,  this isn't actually quite possible insitde couchdb except
by having your own auth .

However if you mean by concurrent logins, same login in different tabs
of the browser, you can easily handle it using either cookie auth or
by setting a cookie once a user has been authenticated.
