Hello everyone, 

I have written down some thoughts and ideas on the future development
of Erlang.

Main topics:

 - some notes on implementation and backward compatibility

 - an alternative to Erlang's selective receive

 - a simple language mechanism to allow function in-lining across
   module boundaries

 - a new mechanism for introducing local variables with a more cleanly
   defined semantics

 - a mini-language to allow the efficent implementation of low-level
   algorithms
