Wouldn't a _changes feed provide you with the same kind of information
? Because rsync'ing the db file, only retrieving the diff from the
last time we checked it, looks a lot like getting
with the drawbacks that you would have to store the
last_fetched_seqnum somewhere and that you couldn't compress it

Anyway, I didn't know that you could just copy the db files that
easily. Yet Another great feature !
