Subject Re: following fast doc updates

Alternatively, you could use two dbs. One db you could write "change
requests" to (each request as a new doc) and then listen for changes
on that and apply them in that logic. This also has that added benefit
that you could do the timestamped dbname pattern for your changes feed
dbs to (possibly depending on use case) remove some of the cruft
