When I implemented this, couch_potato was moving quite quickly, and I
used a patched version myself. And I didn't keep on rebasing and
integrating changes from the github master since, so it is quite
likely that there happened some bit rot. My main reason for using
CouchDB was that I wanted to spice up the project by using a
technology that thrilled me.

If you are immediately productive with a straightforward AR solution
you should probably switch over and focus on the actual features you
want. William Siegrist who looks after the other MP systems was
pushing into the direction of MySQL anyway, so that might just make
things easier for everyone. I wont be offended if you switch :) Quite
to the contrary, I'm happy if this project lives on.
