i would like to suggest another possiblity:
software that has grown organically (without overall plan and/or 
guidelines) and always remains backwards compatible, often comes with 
complex dependencies between its components.

i doubt that it is impossible to have the same functionality, as in the 
current complexly dependent erlang/otp, in a layered erlang distribution 
if the backwards compatibility could be allowed below 100%.
i could be wrong, of course.
