Implementing tables - advice wanted

Here's a very simple, timid step toward making hash tabels easier to
use in Erlang  This is ugly:

   ets:new(anonymnous, []),

I'm all for adding a helper function that creates the equivalent of a
Python dict / Perl hash:

   ets:new()

It creates an anonymous, private set.  This covers 90% of the cases
where I want to use hash tables.
