There is nothing like that in place already. There is only the  
replication mechanism and you're responsible for starting it, in both  
directions if needed, tunneling the HTTP if needed, keeping track of  
the nodes in the setup etc.

CouchDB just makes sure that you can replicate no matter what happened  
between replication runs.
