I will venture to answer that one.

As promised by the OTP team (ticket reference seq4927), it
*will* be documented (they didn't say when...).

The functions gen:spawn_opt/4 and proc_lib:spawn_opt/4 are the
underlying mechanisms, making this available to all behaviours.
Neither of them are documented... yet.
