	There's a Makefile at the top level that generates the plist file to include the current
version.  It pulls the version from `git describe` so all you have to do is tag it and "make"
and you'll get the whole thing.

	I suspect it should be pretty easy to get everything together.  I rolled out five or six
releases on this thing from a couple different machines, and I don't like repeating myself,
so it should go pretty smoothly, though may require just a bit of setup (I also don't like
bending environments to my will, so I wouldn't expect it'd need all that much).

If you could point me to a commit that you recommend that I can checkout and build with perhaps
a quick explanation of your build process to get the Erlang/CouchDB in place I would be really

	The Xcode build should download erlang R14B03 (a binary package I put together that's stripped
down).  We can make a new one of those with a more recent erlang build, but I'd expect the
existing one to work for now.

	I, for one, am very happy to get a new version of this going.  Doubly if an enthusiast out
in the wild does it. :)
