1.2.0 already supports this;

Usage: couchjs [FILE]

The couchjs command runs the Apache CouchDB JavaScript interpreter.

The exit status is 0 for success or 1 for failure.


  -h          display a short help message and exit
  -V          display version information and exit
  -H          enable couchjs cURL bindings (only avaiable
              if package was built with cURL available)
  -S SIZE     specify that the interpreter should set the
              stack quota for JS contexts to SIZE bytes

Re custom patches on build-couchdb, simplest approach is to fork, apply
your patch to a custom branch and then use  something like:

 rake git="git:// a_fork" install=a_spoon
