Yep, but in my mind this should live outside CouchDB's HTTP API. A dump and restore tool that
lived on the command line, like the Subversion hotcopy stuff is the first thing that springs
to mind. Or PostgreSQL's pgdump tool, or whatever. But as far as I understand the current
file format, you should be able to just rsync the .couch files while the database is running.
