Does he or anyone go into more detail on methods for coordinating
action evocation based on replication (ie, _changes)?  I don't like
the idea of one app hanging off one instance of couchdb.  then you
still have to implement failover detection, etc.  if it starts with
all nodes being active, but maybe the first one starts once it's new,
and the second hits if it's 5 minutes old, etc. or I was thinking of a
distributed queue but in order to take an item off the queue, you have
to "take ownership" of it, and get acks from N other couch instances
to make sure you're not racing with them...

Has anyone thought of this type of stuff and elaborated on it?
