I am after is that the fact that for reliable storage on Windows Erlang R14B1 is required
for 1.0.2 should be noted in a place where people downloading or reading up on 1.0.2 are looking
(i.e. the release announcement mail, which gets syndicated to many news sites as well as the
download page, where, duh, the download happens).

Of note is that Windows users don't actually care about this for the
most part. Its important to remember that the large majority of
Windows users will only be downloading the prebuilt binaries.
Therefore, seeing as very few people would actually be building
CouchDB on Windows, I would just update the README on whatever
branches that it requires R14B01.

And since we're not (to my knowledge) announcing Windows support on
this release, there's nothing left to really concern ourselves with.
