[erlang-questions] process dictionary, anyone?

I think the process dictionary is unfairly maligned.  Having
per-process globals is a _good_ thing.  It can make code simpler and
more maintainable in specific situations.  Now I'd just like some
syntactic sugar to make them easier to use and to give the illusion of
having dead simple hash table / dictionary support in Erlang :)
