It's (still) stupid arguing that NoSQL systems are crappy at proving the things RDBMS systems provide. (Because they are, and no one has ever said differently, it's akin to yelling at a Bugatti Veyron (yeah, I went there) for being so bad at flying.)

I'm not using CouchDB because I needed relationships and the RDBMS features of SQL Server but decided at the last minute 'Ehh oh well, let's just try this fancy NoSQL business, I'll rewrite all the RDBMS features into my code'.

Believe it or not I'm using CouchDB because I want to run map/reduce on a bunch of JSON! Astounding, right!?
