Uh, yes. This is not ideal world, this is a real problem that affects end users. Ubuntu includes CouchDB on the livecd, and absolutely does not want all of OTP dragged in as a dependency. Every release there is pressure to remove Erlang and CouchDB to free up more space on the CD. Every few K helps - I want these technologies available in more environments such as mobile and tablet, where space is even more important.
