As a CouchApp developer, I'd like access to a listing of local-only (_local) docs.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: COUCHDB-1145
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-1145
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: HTTP Interface
            Reporter: Benjamin Young


I'm seeing an increased use of _local/{doc}  in CouchApps for storing local config data that
should not be replicated for security reasons or because they want it to stay local for instance
identification.

Currently, those docs can only be retrieved if the app developer knows they're there--which
may be fine for the app developer. However, if the local user/admin who installed the CouchApp
wanted to see the data stored, they can't--at least not via Futon...they'd have to use some
pretty complex Erlang via the Erlang shell (re: davisp).

Please consider making _local doc listing available to the REST API, so it can be exposed
to Futon (and others).

Thanks.
