Release notes 

Note: Dmedia has NOT earned its "production ready" wings yet, so please treat this release with the usual caution. Test Dmedia, give us feedback, but don't exclusively trust your data to Dmedia... yet.

Changes include:

  * Up preemptive copy increasing from considering 100 files to considering 300 files

  * Port to the Degu 0.2 API:

  * Dmedia now uses the new Microfiber replicator instead of the standard CouchDB replicator; a known downside is that there is a big performance hit compared to unfiltered CouchDB replication, although there is a more moderate performance hit compared to filtered CouchDB replication (which is what Dmedia should use, despite not doing so for a few releases); the new replicator has been extensively tested, including outside of Dmedia, but the new replicator is still a good reason to be extra skeptical of the Dmedia 14.02 release... any and all bug reports on this front are welcome!

  * In `dmedia.core`, downgrade_worker() now attempts to confirm a reasonable state of synchronization via pull replication with all visible peers before doing the downgrade; this can prevent needless (and expensive) downgrades when a new peer is initially added into a large existing Dmedia library; but note there are still circumstances (rare as they probably are) under which this new behavior could prevent the actual downgrade actions from being reached... something which absolutely must be fixed in order for Dmedia to be considered production ready!

  * Fix script unit tests now that Python3.4 argparse --version outputs to stdout instead of stderr
