Using PropEr as a build/test dependency is similar to relying on autoconf (under GPL license), but it would be more ideal to have triq usage within the Erlang/OTP installation, to be used like QuickCheck is used in Haskell, i.e., for any testing without restriction. Having repeatable tests is an important part of science, so this is a very basic, fundamental concern.
