Suggested change: use Erlang

Resistance:

Reason:

Erlang combines functional programming and the pi calculus, 
each based on mathematics and logic. It's a really 
interesting academic field, I'd love to work on that sort of 
thing if I were a professor, but it has no practical 
applications, especially with teams of ordinary programmers 
who don't have Ph.D's in mathematics.
