I asked this a few weeks ago on IRC and was told there wasn't a way to
do this. They appear to be totally invisible unless you know what they
are called.

However if you are trying to fiddle with the replication documents you
can discover what they are called by looking in the couch log. When
replication starts it spits out a message like

starting new replication "f3f357dd7528fc1983437707dd97780e"

The MD5 is a product of various attributes of the replication
source/target like hostname, database name, etc. I don't know the
precise details.

The replication document ID is, in this case,

So you can get it and update it as usual.

If you aren't looking for replication documents I hope this is useful to
someone else who is looking for them, as I was a few weeks back.
