Support for dirty tracking #64

Sorry, I created this on google code already. It would be helpful to have dirty tracking on objects, so that an extra save to couch could be avoided; reducing wasted revision changes.

Dirty tracking is pretty complex to implement as it implies that you have to create proxies around all objects as they are loaded from the db. You risk running into all kinds of class loader trouble and what not.

Or is there a better way?

Yes, that is definitely a complex, and common, way of doing it. The way I was thinking was that, before marshalling the json into an object, take that json and perform a hashsum on it, store the hash in a JsonIgnore variable on on CouchDbDocument. Then, before performing a save do a new hashsum on the unmarshalled json. Compare those two values, and chose whether or not to save. If we do save then we can recalculate the hashsum with the new revision included.
