creating a new document with an ID that used to belong to a now-deleted document fails with a conflict error #202

Currently if you delete a document (via PUT with _deleted : true) the rev lingers, making creation of a subsequent document with the same id impossible (unless you happen to know the rev of the deleted version, as is returned in the response to the PUT)

Things seem to work OK if you delete a document using HTTP's delete method.


I think the bug you're talking about only happens if you re-create the doc using the exact same contents as the former first revision (so it gets the same revID.) That's #205 (I filed a new bug because I didn't see that this one describes the same problem.)
