Wellll... we can keep the branch around for our maintenance, but it
seems to me like most distros would prefer tarball + patch over some
Git branch. At least that's the way we do it on Gentoo.

Ugh. Well, I'd say people who want newer CouchDB can get newer Erlang.
If you can build Couch from scratch, why not do Erlang too? I'm firmly
of the opinion that, if you're on some rock-stable distro, you get
your rock-stable CouchDB. If you want the fresh-faced fun CouchDB, you
can take care of your own fresh-faced intermediate dependencies as
well. But then I might be biased by my nicely source-based distro
