Isn't [couch_httpd_auth] a couch-wide setting? It needs to be per
database. Otherwise, there's no public access at all, which would
greatly diminish the usefulness/uniqueness of using couchdb.

Would it go against CouchDB design philosophy to have a _user role
pre-defined, and tied to the _users database? If not, I think it would
make sense and be useful to many developers. Where is the place to
suggest and discuss this as a feature?
