We implemented the kernel SCTP binding for Erlang, as well as a pure 
Erlang M3UA.  The SCTP performance is comparable to TCP.  M3UA doesn't 
add much overhead as its mere job is to run a fairly simple state 
machine, relay messages to/from its user part, and react on association 
up/down events.

Generally the presence of binary pattern matching and good concurrency 
model in Erlang makes it a good choice for implementing networking 
protocols...
