What exactly do you have in mind? I think the patch and
my legal understanding* of this is that the addition of EUnit
tests is unobtrusive:

  - EUnit tests are not required to run to build or install CouchDB.
  - If a downstream project can't provide EUnit for whatever reason,
    they can't run our unit tests.
  - We continue to ship pure Apache 2.0 licensed code.

Cheers
Jan
