[erlang-questions] Bundle rebar with Erlang/OTP packages

A nice feature of Ruby is the built-in RubyGems system, an easy way for
developers to package, release, and install each other's Ruby modules.

Erlang suffers from a lack of a de facto package system. Most recommend
rebar, but it's not that easy to setup, and most of the Erlang tutorials
don't say how to use it.

I think it would greatly improve the Erlang community if we bundled rebar
with the official Erlang/OTP packages, so that developers could package,
release, and install each other's modules with out of the box Erlang, no
additional tools required.
