> I'm seeing an increased use of _local/{doc}  in CouchApps for storing local config data
that should not be replicated for security reasons or because they want it to stay local for
instance identification.
> Currently, those docs can only be retrieved if the app developer knows they're there--which
may be fine for the app developer. However, if the local user/admin who installed the CouchApp
wanted to see the data stored, they can't--at least not via Futon...they'd have to use some
pretty complex Erlang via the Erlang shell (re: davisp).
> Please consider making _local doc listing available to the REST API, so it can be exposed
to Futon (and others).
> Thanks.
