I mean, if one can easily plug its software to an otp like module/ 
behavior (or whatever) automatically included by sinan at build  
stage, then it will be trivial for cean to manage live code upgrade  
for all sinan packaged apps.

by now, cean can package almost every contribution available. but  
there is no common way for handling code upgrade. so while  
applications are not developped/packaged using a defined system like  
sinan, it's impossible to handle live code upgrade except calling  
AppMainModule:code_change and let developers implement that function.

moreover, if packages become aware of the otp release management,  
then we'll have more flexibility and ability to handle them.

what do you think about ?
