As a CouchApp developer, I'd like access to a listing of local-only (_local) docs.

      Description

      I'm seeing an increased use of _local/

      {doc}

      in CouchApps for storing local config data that should not be replicated for security reasons or because they want it to stay local for instance identification.

      Currently, those docs can only be retrieved if the app developer knows they're there-which may be fine for the app developer. However, if the local user/admin who installed the CouchApp wanted to see the data stored, they can't-at least not via Futon...they'd have to use some pretty complex Erlang via the Erlang shell (re: davisp).

      Please consider making _local doc listing available to the REST API, so it can be exposed to Futon (and others).

      Thanks.
