gen_tcp will do the entire TCP session setup for me, so it's not appropriate for my task. Just because C might be better for this task, doesn't mean it's better for the rest of my program. In fact, there's are at least 2 examples of projects that implement network stacks in Erlang, so at least a few people out there that would disagree with you and instead agree that there is some merit in using Erlang :)
