This is probably possible with CouchDB but I'd seriously think it'd be
easier to write a Rails (or your favorite framework here) app that
does it with CouchDB as the datastore. Just because you can do it all
in JavaScript in CouchDB doesn't necessarily mean you should. But then
there are some apps which totally make sense being done that way.
