[erlang-bugs] R16 breaks dots

Hello,

I wrote a patch that allows dotted atoms everywhere in the syntax but record expressions, where they would be ambiguous. I wrote no tests as I have no idea where they should go. Furthermore, I think that maybe the pretty-printer should be patched to not quote dotted atoms outside record expressions.

	git fetch https://github.com/nox/otp.git restore-dotted-atoms

	https://github.com/nox/otp/compare/erlang:maint...restore-dotted-atoms
	https://github.com/nox/otp/compare/erlang:maint...restore-dotted-atoms.patch

Regards,
