Great - please report what you had to change (to erlang-maintainers is
probably sufficient) once you have it running. In particular it would be
interesting to know if you get the distribution working, there are (or
at least were in the old version of AIX that Klacke ported to) some
issues with non-blocking mode on sockets in AIX...

They're equivalent, basically it's a matter of taste (my personal taste
agrees with yours by the way:-).
