And miss out on the improvements & support that comes with the latest 
version of Erlang? *laugh* Even if I could convince myself it was worth 
it (which, given the fact I evangelize the SMP & concurrency tie-in of 
Erlang alot, is a hard task), I doubt I could make it fly with 
management as soon as it comes out it is soon to be THREE major versions 
behind.

Funnily enough, the source for Erlang/OTP still has remenants of the SAE 
code lying around. I never got an answer from the "Powers That Be" (i.e. 
core Erlang developers) as to whether this is just waiting on being 
cleaned out or whether it is there for later 
incorporation/improvement... I am assuming the former but would be 
pleasantly surprised if it were the latter.
