Subject Re: Upgrading an existing Couch's authentication

Hi Aaron,

  Just to chime in a bit, this swinger app is way cool!  I've been using an older version

I very happy you're keeping up with this app, it's great to give a talk about couchdb and
couchapps and be able to say "oh by the way this presentation is a couchapp"  It rocks! 

+1 beer
