Due to custom source code execution like in case of temp views. While
it's might be ok for sandboxed languages, I don't like to have such
feature for Python query server or even Erlang one for oblivious

For access to the database api inside design functions I'm not
sure...I'm playing within for lua query server - it's cool and
very-very powerful feature, but it works just because I could pass
native Erlang couch_* functions into it. For other languages I fear we
have to setup some generic RPC service on CouchDB side for that (and
make a lot of work for public API) and not sure that this is wise
