I'm pretty sure that even in 1.2.x and master each replication with a remote source still
requires one dedicated TCP connection to consume the _changes feed.  Replications with a local
source have always been able to use a connection pool per host:port combination.  That's not
to downplay the significance of the rewrite of the replicator in 1.2.x; Filipe put quite a
lot of time into it.
