Subject Re: Adding additional fields to _attachments
Date Thu, 29 Mar 2012 21:29:23 GMT
Nope. Fields beginning with _ are reserved by the system. In this
case, _attachments is not really part of your document at all, it's
added by couchdb from its knowledge of your attachments.

You can add an "attachments" object that mirrors _attachments and
store any attributes you like there.
