Trying to reformulate my previous statement, what I mean is that it is
comparatively much easier to extend most programming languages to allow
new language constructs and semantics like functional behaviour/pattern
matching/single assignment/whatever, than it is to provide the kind of
environment that the ERTS provides for Erlang processes.
