Provide Futon UI option that would use 'stale=ok' when browsing DB views in Futon, useful for
write-heavy DB's
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: COUCHDB-550
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-550
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Administration Console
         Environment: All
            Reporter: Glenn Rempe


If a CouchDB has continuous writes, as in the case of a log capturing system, it becomes very
difficult to use Futon to browse the views in a design document.  If writes are continuous
in the background, and the admin chooses a view to browse in Futon, CouchDB will force an
update to the view index and will block Futon on trying to browse that design document.  
This makes it almost impossible to be able to browse the view results as the indexing may
never catch up with the writes.

A possible solution to this is to provide a UI option (Checkbox) in Futon which would append
the "stale='ok'" onto all Futon view requests allowing for instantaneous browsing of the current
state of the DB view indexes.  This option would be off by default (current behavior).
