I don't think it does. In fact I'd say it emphasises the flexibility of couch apps and how
they play nicely with other tools ("hey look, you can use this database with the toolset I'm
used to from jquery").

I'd rather use something that exists today and evaluate erica when it is included with CouchDB
and has the necessary feature set in the future. 

With grunt we can get consistent build environments, with erica we'd either have people installing
tools (linters, less compiler, minify-ers etc) manually/ad-hoc, have to rely on something
like npm (and if we're doing that, why not use grunt?) or build it ourselves (eurgh!).
