    Indeed I understand that the internal MVCC features shouldn't be
used on a day to day business. But in my case I intend to use CouchDB
as a "backend" store, thus I'll have a stronger control over it than a
normal application / user.

    From your reply I also understand from this that it is available
somehow... Thus how? :)
