Applying a patch does not do much for code like Chicago Boss that
people will download and try with "the latest Erlang".

What is necessary is some code that will do

case erlang:system_info(otp_release) of
   "R16B03" ->
       ... mangle the AST in such a way to not make the parse transform barf...;
    _ -> ok
end.

I've been looking at how to do this, but I'm afraid my knowledge of
this part of Erlang is not quite up to the task so far.

Thank you,
