      It would be nice if the HTTP interface made it easy to find other relevant resources (i.e. don't require the API user to know the endpoints beforehand).

        Hmm, adding "admin": "/_utils/" would probably also make sense.

        Was there a mailing list thread about this? At the very least this would need to be changed to pull the urls from the current config instead of hard coding the end points. Also what does this add beyond hitting the _config end point to get the list of other end points? Though _config might be gone or named differently. So maybe just a link to the _config end point? Now I've managed to confuse myself.

        Suggest:

        1. Push this out past 1.3.x
        2. Make this a sub-issue of COUCHDB-472
        3. Make both this and 472 a part of the Fauxton / new Futon work.
