I would love to see document describing the BEAM architecture, including a
reference for the generic opcode set.   I expect it would be fairly easy to
write an emulator for a subset of BEAM.  Not only would be an interesting
project, but it would open the door to writing pico Erlangs for specific
needs.  Surely Ericsson has a BEAM write-up that could be released?
