Basic stuff like compiler and parsetools are pretty lightweight, and useful.
It would be annoying, I think, if the core Erlang package was no good for
development and you had to grab an additional small package in order to
compile code. And, okay, like parsetools :) But I agree that mnesia should
be moved out of the core. It's far from lightweight, and it's certainly not
something that most people use.
Isn't the crypto module semi-obsolete, because the MD5 digest functions have
been added as BIFs?
