Commit ce83780490b4fefaa0df5df2ed7447cc6331befd in couchdb-chttpd's branch refs/heads/2452-users-db-security-on-clustered-interface

Export function for updating auth docs

The process of writing documents to the authentication DB varies
depending whether the authentication DB is on the admin or the
clustered interface. Authentication handlers should therefore
abstract the details away and provide a generic update_doc
function.

This commit adds an update_auth_doc function to the chttpd auth
cache which proxies to fabric:update_doc/3.

> The authentication DB (default name _users) has special security semantics which are
currently only supported on the admin port (default 5986). Since we support using the _users
DB on the clustered port we should also ensure the same security semantics apply there.
