My current use case is to allow my views to access the DateJS library.
Ideally what I would like to have would be a way to expose custom JS
libraries across all of my views without needing to include it in each
view. Putting code in main.js is definitely less-than ideal - I'd
prefer to be able to install JavaScript code into CouchDB as a
document and have it be reusable across my views.
