I think what's needed is a few examples of people using <insert  
favourite AJAX framework here> with CouchDB on the wiki from the  
community. What's used in Futon is somewhat irrelevant, and should be  
decided by who ever is doing the work to upgrade it. So long as  
there's not a proliferation of javascript frameworks in the CouchDB  
dependancy list I don't see an issue.
