Hi Eric - I am looking at this patch, and I find the diff a bit strange. I
see in the first commit that you updated the documentation (rb.xml) for
e.g. rb:start:

-        <v>FileName = string() | standard_io</v>
+        <v>FileName = string() | atom() | pid()</v>

but this is backed out again in your second commit, although is seems the
code is still there (and, as far as I can understand, this functionality is
also the main point of the patch). Could you please have a look at it? Did
something go wrong in a merge or rebase?
