We have used it at medic mobile to distribute apps to underserved health
care regions via a branded marketplace. It also works well with to run node modules bundled with a
couchapp (if you want to powerup your couchapp).

I really want to make the initial garden setup into a new couch plugin that

been a bit limited lately, but any help I for sure can give pointers.
