I looked at UBF a long time ago and I thought it was a very
interesting idea. What I was wondering is why there seems to have been
so little apparent interest in this (i.e. why hasn't it transitioned
from the POC).

As I said earlier in the thread, I don't think that Google's idea is
particularly new.

The advantage I see in terms of integrating Erlang with other
languages is that there seems to be a budding community of people
writing implementations in other languages. I think this would be a
good thing to piggyback off.
