	Unfortunately, what I would really like is something akin to an OTP  
Illustrated. OTP is by far the hardest thing I have to wrap my head  
around. Proper use of supervisor tree, best practices on function  
placement, common idioms, etc.,.

	A lot of the other stuff you can pick up pretty quickly from the man  
pages an existing sources, but for some reason I have a hard time  
getting very far into OTP.

	My biggest problems all tend to revolve around optimal use of those  
libraries and understanding the culture they promulgated.
