> Hello OTP team,
> It will be nice to have a feature in ETS where for a
> set/ordered_set table, an object is inserted into the table
> only if an object with the same key doesn't already exist.
> Without this feature, a lot of times I find myself writing
> code where I am accessing a gen_server only to make sure a
> key hasn't already been used which makes that gen_server
> process a bottleneck in the system.
> Is this possible? The operation could probably be called ets:create/2
...or ets:insert_new(Tab, Obj). (:
