My thought on this when I looked at it last month was that the Couchbase branch was "more
advanced" — for a OS X UI point of view — but that Benoit's rcouch branch "just worked"
— i.e. you just run make and it pulls all the dependencies you need and builds them.

— this latter is quite important — I look at anything that says, "just compile the dependencies
you need and put them in the build folder" and think, Oh God that's an hour or two (or three)
that I haven't got right now. 

— for me then, a merge strategy looks like getting Benpoit's dependency building into Hans'
fork of the Couchbase repo and labelling that the official fork.

(I'm very happy to help with the Mac end going forward.)
