Hey Dirkjan,

I think we're only talking about OTP apps (snappy, ejson/jiffy, mochiweb) here.
Would you want those as separate packages?

For libraries (javascript, erlang, curl, icu) I totally agree, and I
don't think we
have any of those included in source tree today, nor would we be adding them.

A+
Dave
