You could put your project into the Jungerl (jungerl.sourceforge.net).
The whole idea of that is that we collect together a large body of
Erlang code (including xmlerl) into a single source tree so that it's
always available to other Jungerl-based code.

Alternatively you could distribute your app separately but have the
Jungerl as your one big dependency. e.g. the Jungerl includes a shell
script called 'jerl' which just starts up Erlang with the whole slow
of libraries added to the code path.

.. not that I want to be seen as promoting XML over Erlang-syntax
config files :-)

Cheers,
Luke
