> CouchDB relies on OpenSSL (through Erlang's crypto module) to generate UUIDs. Erlang
can be configured to not include crypto. CouchDB dies a horrible (read: cryptic error message)
death. ./configure could check for the availability of crypto in the Erlang installation.
> This could also be solved by bundling a standalone UUID generation library. According
to Damien, this is the mid-term solution.
