You might also want to check out this Corrado Santoro's Exat, at
http://www.diit.unict.it/users/csanto/exat/index.html. It has a nice
implementation of something that might become "objective erlang".

I believe you will learn a lot more from trying to do it "the clean Erlang way".
For me it was a wonderful revelation when I finally managed to snap out of the
OO mindset. Not that it's wrong, but it's not an universal solution either.
