We always patch Mochiweb to fit our needs that are divergent from the
upstream project. It isn't safe to assume an independent cut of Mochiweb
will just work.

e.g. we're changing the default handling of encoding integers in mochijson2
among other things.

I'd strongly suggest to not build a package that is seemingly like our
release but has subtle differences or bugs.
