> -----------------------------------------------
>                 Key: COUCHDB-351
>                 URL:
>             Project: CouchDB
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: Database Core
>            Reporter: Adam Kocoloski
>            Priority: Minor
> Ben Cohen noted that Couch will fail to make progress if a link is never up long enough
to transfer a specific large document or attachment:
> If we want to do intra-document checkpointing we'll need:
> 1) support for the Range header in GET requests
> 2) a place to store partially-transferred docs/attachments when a replication fails --
possibly as attachments to the replicator _local doc.  On the other hand, this feature is
not really replication-specific, so we'd probably want some sort of standalone "upload cache"
that saves partial transfers.
> 3) for push replication, an extension to the _missing_revs API that can describe partial
transfers existing on the target
