You can do a lot with tweaking your _id. See this link :

Basically :
- use shorter _ids
- use sequential _ids. If you cannot (eg because you have multiple
disconnected parts that will have to merge often and that would cause
too many clashes), you can use couchdb's own semi-sequential generated uuids.
