Sure, our way is clear. We aren't shipping CouchDB. Makes my CouchDB  
Ltd data point somewhat moot.

Interesting issue though, given tools such as GIT that make cherry  
picking patches so easy - we could construct an artifact by re- 
ordering or leaving out certain patches, that wouldn't be a derived  
work because every component is part of the official version.
