So I've written an app that spawns an erlang node on the device for the
purpose of remotely controlling a RaspberryPi device via Erlang
distribution.  Would there be any way to use Erlang4Android as a dependency
of another app?  I did end up using your compiled Erlang distribution,
because I cross-compiled for my device successfully but it was missing some
of the erlang binaries inexplicably - so I punted :)
