I like this... recently, while loading a huge amount of data (80milion 
records+) into a bunch of mnesia disk-only tables, I've noticed that 
responsiveness of the ERLANG run-time decreases dramatically with increase 
of I/O wait, i.e. if one attempts to issue a command to shell, it might take 
few seconds before it even consider's it (well, I did fix the problem... 
using a hammer, though).
Am I correct in understanding that adding more threads, I/O wait would have 
lesser effect on run-time agility?

PS
I'm still using R9 and running out of excuses (other than logisitical ones) 
not to migrate to R10. I am begging you to give me at least one ;-).
