	While that stuff is probably a bit scary for the average new
erlang user, *please* don't forget that keeping certain design principles
is a key differentiation factor for Erlang. One can write horrible code
even in Erlang. A "design principles" section is, IMVHO, necessary, even
if it's a bit lighter than today.
