  IMO, it makes more sense to optimize for the case where people don't
create two servers with the same name and/or IP address in two different
networks a single user is likely to connect to, but where the two
servers have different replication policies that should be handled
implicitly and SSL/TLS is not used to confirm the correct server is in

  Mysteriously running either two or zero replicas on my laptop for a
single configured backend would *almost* be excusable with your
justifications if it didn't fix itself when I restarted CouchDB.
