The if expression is well suited to handling boolean expressions:

    if
        HaveMoney and Hungry ->
            buy_food();
        HaveMoney and not Hungry ->
            buy_beer();
        not HaveMoney ->
            work()
    end

It just reads better.

As far as a new Erlang goes I'd mostly want the libraries modernized.
Now that we have try ... catch ... end it would be nice if we didn't
have to code for {ok, value} | {error, Reason} any longer.
