It appears that every time my server restarts, CouchRest is re-saving  
the design doc for its models. This brings up two questions:

1. Should CouchRest be doing this? Should I find a way around it so  
that the design docs don't get re-saved unless they change? I seem to  
recall that previous versions took a hash of the view contents to  
avoid this very problem.
2. Should CouchDB be reindexing views that were re-saved, unchanged  
from their previous content?
