There is no need to do anything in C. Erlang distribution has "defined"
wire protocol (in erlang, C and java source code, unfortunately no  
documents).

Doing it directly in Smalltalk will probably (just probably) give better
mach between Erlang and Smalltalk models world orders.

Mapping through C means mapping concepts into one foreign context and
mapping that foreign context to next foreign context.
