Hi Adam,

well afaik chunked connections cannot be reused. At least if i try it i
get a bad status line from the server. This might be another CouchDB
issue though. The chunked connections keep answering with empty lines
instead of returning a new HTTP status line. I am not that deep inside
the HTTP protocol to know if that is intentional.

Ok i see your point. Though i am using a single connection pool for all
couch interaction. Of course i can use a different one for the
replication stuff.
