I've posted a script that copies between two running CouchDB
instances. I'm using the all_or_nothing option. It does attachments
inline using base64 encoding because it mostly works. I think if you
have attachments so big that they can't be buffered, you probably want
to avoid bulk docs anyway. If anyone desperately needs such a script
you might be able to convince me to modify what I've written.
