[erlang-questions] exmpp and rebar

You don't need rebar-ized versions of things to make them work in a
release.

When you say the beam is laying next to the .app file, do you mean in the
generated release directory structure, or in the original install location
(inside of code:lib_dir), because those are two different things and
sometimes reltool (upon which `rebar generate' is based) doesn't copy beams
across for a number of reasons.
