Subject invalid json allowed into couch
Date Sat, 19 Sep 2009 23:11:32 GMT

currently if adding documents to couch using the REST api it is
possible to add a document such as

  "prop1": "1",
  "prop1": "2"

which only displays partially in Futon (skips first property, "prop1":
"1") due to the unique constraints of JSON object properties.

This is actually a good feature, since I am generating invalid JSON
from an event based API, is there a way to add a normalisation
function to the write document operation  (using Erlang ideally) that
would group these properties,  its gets difficult when the documents
are nested but any thoughts appreciated.

Many thanks,
