This is a fork of well-known couchdb-python project.
Main goal - drop away buggy unneeded httplib2 and replace it with mature robust curl library (via pycurl wrapper).
Actually, everything is working pretty well, and is capable to face much more load, than httplib-based implementation.
And, we are not dead! Couchdb-python-curl is working in a number of our company internal projects, so it's production-ready (at least, for us). Patches, fixes, bugs are welcome!
