> Multi-cpu Erlang is a very attractive proposition.

I agree.  With AMD and Intel both pushing multiple cores on one chip,
this looks like the time to resurrect the multi-CPU Erlang research. 
I fully expect that *all* desktops will have multiple CPUs within the
next five years.  (There are even rumors that, as part of the
transition to Intel chips, Apple is only going to ship multi-CPU
machines, including notebooks.  We'll see.)
