The 1_7_0 tag was created when the head of the default branch of the
erlang client *stopped* working with 1.7.0 - thus it was saying "this
is the last known version that works with 1.7.0 before the APIs and
shared code diverged".

Given that API divergences are usually symmetric, I'd expect the 1_7_0
Erlang client won't work with 1.7.1 server, though I may be wrong.
Certainly I'm using the head of the default branch of the Erlang client
all the time just at the moment, so I would recommend you use that too.

Again, once the APIs change to the extent that head of default erlang
client stop working with the 1.7.1 server, we'll tag the last good 
version with 1_7_1.
