list_to_existing_atom is too restrictive as used by couch_rep

                 Key: COUCHDB-1004
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Replication
         Environment: erlang
            Reporter: Bob Dionne
            Priority: Minor

We'd like to additional information to db_info in BigCouch, such as the Q and N constants
for a given database. This causes replication to fail when replicating from BigCouch to CouchDB
due to the use of list_to_existing_atom in couch_rep:dbinfo(...

The claim is that list_to_atom pollutes the atoms table, however superficial testing indicates
this is not the case, list_to_atom when called repeatedly seems to work fine. If this is true
then consider reverting list_to_existing_atom back to list_to_atom.
