[erlang-questions] Changing the shell and module syntax andsemantics

Why not even support
to switch current modules ?
Just like (in-package :xxx) in Common-Lisp ?

Erlang's modules are not exactly the same thing as CL's packages. There
is a notion of "(reloadable) compilation unit" that does not exist in CL
but the shell could provide us with the right commands.

We could just type
in the shell to compile/load the current module...

I'm no Erlang expert. I'm no CL expert either, so if my comments make no
sense, don't bother.
