Since the CouchDB is a restful interface, I don't see whey someone couldn't
write an abstraction in Java to allow CouchDB interaction. It would seem
like overkill running a map/reduce and calling secondary map/reduce jobs.
But I could see conf/meta information being a good candidate for CouchDB
while using Hadoop.
