------------------------------------------

Hi Benoit.

1/ We'd be totally screwed on iOS even with the current implementation. I'm simply trying
to suggest that we have a 1-to-1 mapping between design documents and processes. This could
be, for example, 1-to-1 mapping between threads and design documents. At present, my understanding
is that processes can be reused for multiple design documents which is something I fundamentally
disagree with.

2/ Agreed, designing a protocol in a more generic fashion is a great idea, however I believe
CouchDB already achieves this with JSON as the fundamental unit of transportation. There are
many different wire-level serialisation options.

3/ I'm not the one suggesting to base decisions of performance at this point, however I do
agree performance needs to be considered, e.g. the considerations in my proposal document
at present.

4a/ Agreed, too much overhead.
4b/ Not sure I understand what you are suggesting here. stdio can go over network if required,
but the latency might be a problem.
4c/ Addressed in my proposal to some extent.
4d/ Disagree. The data flow is fundamentally different and in addition, a non parallel view
server might be managed differently from a parallel one. e.g. you might instantiate multiple
view servers for the same design document.

5/ Agreed. Why don't you read my proposal document?
