Ah, I follow now. This explanation should help.

Each design doc is being processed by an independent couchjs JavaScript interpreter.

If you want all views to be processed with exactly the same delta, put them all in the same
design doc. You are trading off parallelism (# of ddocs, and # of CPU cores potentially) for

Another point to consider is that, if all views are in the same doc, an edit to any of them
will cause recalculation of the *all* views in that doc. This might be good - maybe these
views never change! It really depends on your development and deployment model.

Hi Sebastian,

Even if indexing had started several times and the updates seq number was valid, shouldn’t
all tasks share the same number? (that is, shouldn’t all tasks be indexing the same delta?)
