My other favorite RFC is: RFC1437 -- The Extension of MIME Content-Types
to a New Medium <http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc1437.txt>.
Unfortunately, there is no implementation yet. But given the high
reliability that it requires, it might help push the world towards more
use of Erlang/OTP.
[See, I'm trying to stay on topic. ;-)]
And with all the hardware control experience in the Erlang crowd, I'm
surprised that OTP doesn't come with the following MIB supported:
RFC2325 -- Definitions of Managed Objects for Drip-Type Heated Beverage
Hardware Devices using SMIv2 <http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2325.txt>.

I can't let that rest! My nominee isn't quite so colorful, but is truly
beautiful: Ken Thompson's login hack
[I give up. We're now clearly off topic for erlang-questions. But if
there's anyone out there who doesn't already know about Ken Thompson's
classic hack, they should definitely read the article.]
