and (ii) a couchdb installation as plug-in. Both plug-ins would be platform-specific, right?

a neat package. But yeah, you'd need one per architecture if you want to have it all fit (64bit
Mac OS X *can* run 32bit binaries e.g.), but if the procedure of producing a plugin is automated,
I'm sure a lot of people would pitch into providing binaries.
