Oh well. With OTP *I* mean modules such as application, supervisor,
gen_server, gen_fsm, supervisor_bridge, gen_event, error_logger,
sys, appup, relup, release_handler, sasl, systools and some more.

I should probably call this set of modules something else to stop
confusing you all with the OTP acronym. Suggestions?

If you think the pen is mightier than the sword, the next time someone
pulls out a sword I'd like to see you get up there with your Bic.
