But you’re not going to get the first revision of a locally-created document either, not
if it’s been modified since then — you’ll just see it with its current revision/generation.
(A document only appears once in the _changes feed at any given moment. The _changes feed
is not a complete history of every change in the database. It’s more like a list of the
current documents sorted by time last modified.)
