Need vs want. I've dealt with larger numbers mapped onto a set of far 
fewer threads with reasonable latency.

It's not really an argument. I am just telling you what the perception 
is from a real live person who has had these conversations within a real 
live telecom company. The fact that things like rerouting algorithms 
were not implemented in erlang was seen as a weakness. The fact that C++ 
could be used every level was seen as a strength.
