It's production-ready in the sense that there are no (known) bugs in it and
that you can do everything you need to be attuned to vanilla Erlang and
coexist seemlessly with it. Most of the lisp features you would want are
there as well. What is needed is to fix a few design decisions on the lisp
side.

Next version hopefully.
