Personally, I'm not convinced receive needs much
beyond what we already have. Messing around with
mailboxes (as I proposed) sounds like a typical "under
the hood" issue. (Or are there cases where this is a
huge help to the programmer? It might come in handy
for erlang-in-erlang, but for application
programmers?)

Best,
Thomas
