      Description

      As more people are adopting CouchDB, the number of questions along the lines of "All I see is

      {"couchdb":"Welcome","version":"0.10.0a773399"}

      , what now?"

      If this page redirected to /_utils/ (or maybe something more user-focussed) when the accept headers included html, we could make the first-time user experience more palatable.

      There's some code in COUCHDB-234 that might be helpful here.
