Robert, thats where the confusion started.  I had read in a thread that the _replicator database
would not be exposed in the future.  I guess I warped that statement into meaning that its
"going away".

Jens, because I thought _replciator was going away, I had figured theres some other place
to persist replicator instruction docs.

I should have thought on it more, _replicator database is _the_ solution to resuming replications
between server restarts.

Thanks, and sorry for the confusion guys.  Thats what I get for not brewing on my question
a little more.
