While it is possible that I misunderstood how to use couchdb -then please
correct me!- it seems that the current returner is not practical (requires

I suggest that the database name and the document id be templates and
configurable at runtime.
For instance, one could have something like:

* configuration: couchdb.db: salt-{{ grains['id'] }}
* or run salt '*' module.callable --returner couchdb
--docid_template='foo-{{ jid }}-{{ grains['id'] }}'
