Just to clearify: HiPE will be an *unsupported* part of R8, that is, OTP

Use it at your own risk, and your own reward ;)
(Hopefully, it will be fully supporten in R9.)
One goal with this release is to get a user-base who can give us feedback,
suggestions for improvements, and above all, realistic benchmarks.
