I'm on it.

Mark, aside from Erlang, Spidermonkey and ICU, are there any other pieces in the installer,
like Windows dev-tools/libs?

All you have to do is provide a description of how you packaged CouchDB for Windows, and ask
them for approval. They may ask you a few technical questions (ones which I could not answer,
for example - and I don't fancy playing chinese whispers for people) to get clarification
on a few points - but it shouldn't be anything you can't answer.
