I think it's more accurate to say that early, "idiomatic" Erlang
implementations sucked. Once you give up on using line-oriented I/O
and write a few hundred lines of code using raw I/O, it gets fast.
For the record, though, the winning Perl implementation was a couple
dozen lines and, while clever, not obfuscated.
