I know, I checked that before I mailed the list, but the wiki is not 
exactly know for its always up to date info on the actual latest trunk 
version functionality.

Since my job watcher really is only meant to check status different long 
running jobs on the system, (only one of those is view generation in 
couchdb, other are none couch related jobs) I could get away with 
polling only every few minutes, if I miss it in that interval it's not 
really long running :-)
