What we need, in my opinion, is not a big standard distribution that can
do everything including distributed coffee, but a big package repository
that would be well integrated into Erlang's tools so we could just have
Erlang pull them when needed. Rebar dependencies are doing half the work
there, all that's missing is a community maintained repository that's
supported officially by a big player (either Erlang/OTP or rebar).
