[erlang-bugs] The latest Emacs from CVS doesn't like the backuotes from erlang.el

Hi,
My original intention was the same, but the new style backqoutes was
introduced in Emacs 19.29,
( http://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/elisp/html_node/Backquote.html )
and erlang.el contains compatibility workarounds for Emacs 18:

;;; Avoid errors while compiling this file.

;; `eval-when-compile' is not defined in Emacs 18.  We define it as a
;; no-op.
(or (fboundp 'eval-when-compile)
    (defmacro eval-when-compile (&rest rest) nil))

Replacing the old style backquotes whith new style ones would break
compatibility with Emacs 18, so i just expanded them.

Regards,
Balint
