[erlang-questions] gproc

The patches are really only necessary if you want gproc to become
a part of the kernel application, and the behaviors to store
metadata in gproc automatically.

If you just want to use gproc, you don't need any patches,
but it would of course be nice to have a gproc application.
(One of these days...)

Also note that the gen_leader patch in the svn directory
really shouldn't be used. In my rush to meet the submission
deadline, I accidentally patched the old gen_leader instead
of the new one. The two changes I made to gen_leader were

- making sure that it can start when there is only one known
  node. This is a trivial case.
- making sure that it can start in local mode only, and later
  start the leader election. This is only needed if gproc is
  started before Distributed Erlang is started.
