In one of your answers, you name a few features that you would
consider for a second-system implementation of Erlang.

Some of the points are clear (I'm thinking of the
distributed/capability ideas, much of which have been fleshed out by
others[1]).

But would you mind elaborating on what you had in mind when you spoke
of first-class protocols and a contracts system for them. Are you
thinking of a type-system for protocols? If so, how do you see it
working?


Thanks
