One final question ...

If a single local CouchDB is set up to replicated from 100 friends and
after say some prolonged quiet period a message comes through from 1
of the friends (who has the latest copy with all documents in it) will
all of the subsequent 99 cause the same volume of network traffic or
will they end up being more like "hand shakes" in which it is
determined that none of them have anything new and that no actual data
should be sent?

With that, I thank you all not only for giving me valuable insight but
also for helping me to better formulated my questions. ;)
