I just stumbled on this: the latest erl_parse.yrl contains some stuff
related to adding type annotations to record definitions and specifying
function type signatures. It doesn't seem to be functional yet - at least
when I try it I get some internal crashes in erl_parse. So I suppose it's
something coming in R12.

If this was brought to people's attention before, I must have missed it and
I apologize for increasing the noise level.

best regards,
