I've been saved a few times by the fact that the indexes don't get
deleted when a design doc is changed or deleted. If I accidentally
overwrite a design doc with changes, but revert it before the next
query, there is no costly view rebuild. So I'd favor something that
happens at compaction time rather than at design doc modification
