Yep, I'm pretty much in agreement. None of the desktop-distributed
applications I have in mind really need the hot-update model.

I've been poking around a little at SAE R9 and it seems relatively
straightforward -- at least at the general level -- except for how to
actually build it. ;-) As far as I can make out so far, it's a bootstrap
issue. Building anything requires ecc, which is what I'm trying to
build. I may be completely misunderstanding something, though... I'm not
a seasoned Erlangist by any means.
