if you can use another couchdh then rcouch [1] has the module
couch_dbupdates [2] which ahs been specifically done for that purpose.

Also in rcouch you have the view changes [3]  wich allows you to get
notifications when the index is updated. This is a real view changes
and not the current hack in couchdb, all sequences are incrementally
indexed. This view changes allows you to make efficient filtered
replications without the need of having one db/user. You can also
validate reads [4] if you need it.

Not to say that rcouch is fully compatible and based on couchdb 1.3.
I'm actively working on porting the rcouch core to couchdb.

Hope it helps,
