That might be something doable via the view server / search query /
line-based json API. A job runner that you can submit jobs to wouldn't
be a bad way to obviate http connection issues. Send the job to the
data, they say. And then you could write job functions in any language
you want.

Building it as a plugin would solve the immediate issue, and allow
CouchDB's core to concentrate on getting it right. Plus job runners
just sound useful anyway, especially for things like functions that
clone a group-reduce result to a new database for further manipulation
and querying.
