Agreed; that's what I'm looking for, first and foremost - to learn what the
Erlang way is :) 

Nonetheless, I had a brief look at one of the presentations on the site you
pointed me to, and it seems very interesting if you were to actually use an OO
approach in Erlang. As you say, there's no universal solution, so I guess the
option is always interesting to have.
