Generate a unique Erlang cookie by default (#68)

This relies on new support for the COUCHDB_ERLANG_COOKIE env to
generate a Secret that is written down into ~/.erlang.cookie instead
of passing the cookie in the ERL_FLAGS. I suppose it would be possible
to merge the generated cookie into ERL_FLAGS, but this approach seemed
cleaner and more maintainable going forward.
