While rebar is definitely awesome, it's quite opinionated with opions
that will make it non trivial to integrate into an Autotools build.
Specifically, I haven't figured out how to make it work in a VPATH
build. While I don't think its impossible, the non-trivialness makes
me wonder if it'll be worth the cost. The main benefits of using rebar
(originally) were that it enforces OTP layouts and compiles things
much faster. Perhaps we should just write a small tool that does the
compilation in parallel instead of trying to wedge a square hole into
a hypercube.

No, a Git repo at ASF will carry the same weight as a top level SVN
project directory.
