[erlang-questions] erl_interface shared libraries

I was thinking of using the Smalltalk FFI.  Although I would not be  
opposed to writing a pure Smalltalk implementation, as this would  
then be portable across platforms, and the easiest to distribute to  
the Smalltalk community. (Also, I would probably be faster in  
Smalltalk, than fumbling around with C.)  If one were to look for  
this "defined" wire protocol in the erlang code, where would one do it?

Thanks,

Mike
