> couch_replicator_httpc's retry mechanism interacts poorly with the multipart requests
we use to transfer attachments during replication.  In the case of PUTs, the replicator will
retry a request even though it has already streamed part of the request body.  For GETs, it
can potentially interleave body data from the original response and the retried one.
> I put together a fix at https://github.com/cloudant/couch_replicator/pull/36 that disables
the default httpc client retry mechanism for multipart requests and manages the retry logic
"atomically"; i.e., it retries the original GET request if the GET or PUT fails, and it ensures
that the original GET request is properly terminated during the retry.  I'll push a version
of that patch to the Apache repo now.
