[erlang-questions] what's happened in the shootout

Now it seems ok again. It was problably just som
problem with the build on the AMD.
BTW, I made minor optimizations of the n-body
benchmark (Erlang Hipe #3), and then started
looking at the Mandelbrot. Requiring the program
to output one byte at a time is cruel and unusual
punishment for the lowly Erlang programmer.
Couldn't we introduce a BIF, erlang:put_chars(IoList),
(or possibly put_chars(stdout | stderr, IoList))
which simply writes the given bytes to stdout?
This would be similar to erlang:display(Term), but
without the auto-formatting of erlang terms, and
without the trailing newline.
I understand that there are great advantages to
using the standard IO subsystem, but it seems a bit
rude to not have raw output for those who want
that, and nothing else.
