   @pierrekilly welcome & nice work on your first PR!
   Some background info which may be useful to help you understand what happens 
   as your PR requires the project to include a 3rd party library. We already 
have quite a few
   of these, so it's fine to do this but we need to take a few precautions.
   Your tidy changes require a NIF (C code) addition to the CouchDB 
distribution, so
   we need to make sure of 3 things:
   1. that this runs on all our common platforms, from linux, windows and BSDs
   2. the NIF interface doesn't adversely impact the VM's behaviour
   3. that the licensing of that code, and its provenance, meets our standards
   The Apache Software Foundation, as policy, releases sources artefact that 
   *only* ALv2 licensed components, or those that fall under a sufficiently 
   licence that we can include it in a release -- there's a pre-approved list 
https://apache.org/legal/resolved.html#category-a here
   @dch is happy to do the IP clearance dance assuming we're OK on the NIF side 
of things. Can anybody look into that? the NIF is an R13B04 era style, does 
this need any changes?
