 Yea the guy who did this has a comentary on Erlang
that basically says the same think. That its a nice
langauge and none of the tests are suited to its
strengths. Also I might point out that this uses and
older version of erlang and did not use Hipe at all.
Also this guy was an erlang novice so I am not sure
how efficient the implementations where.
