Not so rare, actually. Anyone who ships Java solutions has been
through that hell.
Esp. when one companies software "Needs" a specific version, yours
needs another, and there can be "only one" installed in the systems
normal/default location. Worse when one system patch is needed for
one package, but breaks another.
If this isn't a problem with Erlang, it is not because Erlang is
immune, it is because Erlang is not popular enough to have that many
developers working on enough projects/products...
OTOH, the more time goes by before Erlang is that popular, the more
(I hope) options there will be to solve this problem.
