I doubt that this means that Erlang might be some kind of mainstream

It just means that the author couldn't think of a better example for a
N:M threading library/VM/whatever. Everything else is probably just even
more obscure. :-)

Erlang seems to be really nice in that niche (I never played with it but
intend to do so after Joe Armstrong's book is out[1]), but I wouldn't
interpret too much into it.


[1] Yes, I know that there is the beta PDF, but right now I don't have
the time, and furthermore, when it comes to reading books, I have to say
that Harry Potter will get priority over this
