i thought bout adding this future to the erts.
to handle functions with side effekts i thought of useing
 ::funname or module::funname
to enable this future.
Is there any problem with using '::'? or should i use other letters ?

today i got the sourecode of erlang from
http://www.erlang.org/download/otp_src_R7B-1.tar.gz and started to
search for the code of erl.
What is the file i have to modify ?? and what are the files assigned to
erl ??

greatz Johannes
