PouchDB is getting rid of server side replication support

So in Thali we need to let a Thali app tell its local TDH to replicate data with a remote TDH. In PouchDB there was a feature to do this but the feature is being removed. The reason it's being removed is that the behavior for replicating between the local PouchDB and a remote CouchDB server and issuing a command to replicate between two remote CouchDB servers was different yet the API in PouchDB was the same. This just confused everyone.

So moving forward we'll have to put in our own support for handling telling TDHs to replicate with each other. I'm o.k. with that because I suspect we'll have to do something special there anyway.

See https://github.com/pouchdb/pouchdb/issues/2140 for more details.
