Users could specify a view to calculate a doc-id mask, by which the
server would filter the replication.

have any trouble receiving a subset of the full replication. However,
it's worth looking out for what happens if you try to replicate again
later (perhaps from a different view of the same database). Could
_revs get out of sync?

This feature has been on the roadmap for a while, so maybe Damien has
