a first time replication would need to traverse the entire database.  Not to mention the timeout
issues which could occur if the db is massive.  I just figured it was a necessary evil.

I agree. Some users of TouchDB have been having performance problems doing filtered pulls
from upstream CouchDB databases, for this reason. Filtered replication is important for mobile
clients because they may not have the bandwidth or storage space to replicate an entire server-side

Is there any chance this feature will be folded back into the main CouchDB source tree?
