Yep, you can use show and list functions from "foreign" design documents;

I appreciate the inconvenience of a design document having a single
language, there are underlying architectural reasons for that but
perhaps there's a useful discussion to be hand in addressing them.

I can't let a mention of native views go by without reminding you that
there's no sandbox (a file:delete(Path) call in any function will
succeed if the user that couchdb is running as has permission).
