Information missing in "Storing Documents": differentiate between PUT and POST #494

According to this, only POST requests can be used to make CouchDB generate an _id automatically (this is importante because as the URL of the request will be different in each case and this can be confusing).

At the chapter, there is this sentence:

if I store something in CouchDB, it creates the _id and returns it to me.

And it is, if not misleading, at least a lot confusing.
