If we don't bundle Erlang itself (and I presume that we will not),
then not at all.  After all, we have plenty of Java projects at the
ASF which depend on a proprietary (at the time, and as of this
writing, not yet released in an open source license) runtime.

The fact that the Erlang Public License is a MPL derivative may, in
fact, give us additional options, should we want to bundle it.  Again,
I don't presume that we will want to do that, but given the proper
NOTICEs, inclusion of Erlang binaries may be a possibility.
