      Description

      I wonder why we spawn the file deletion when we delete a database. On slow io machine it introduces latency. I don't see any reason we make this deletion asynchronous ?

      About couch_file:delete, we first rename the file before deleting it. Why are we doing that ? Is this for windows ?
