>          Issue Type: Bug

> When replicating from a remote source CouchDB uses the open_revs query string parameter
in a document request and supplies a list of revisions that are present on the source but
not on the target.  If this list is very large the resulting URL might exceed 8 KB, in which
case MochiWeb/gen_tcp will not serve the request.
> I'm sure there are a number of ways to work around this limitation.  I'm attaching a
patch that checks if the URL formed from the list of revs to open will be larger than 8 KB,
and if so chunks the list and makes multiple smaller requests.  Best,
> Adam
