No. It's ready to be optimized away. There's a mailing list for CouchRest here:

I hope that the design doc is only being updated once per script load
- eg running 2 view requests should only update the design doc once.

Design docs should not need to be PUT for each definition of the model
class. It should be simple to make a fix for getting the design doc to
see if it matches the ruby view definition.

Do you feel up to making a patch? Running `rake` in the CouchRest
source directory should give you a passing test suite, so patching it
is just a matter of fixing the bug without breaking any of the other
