I'm sure your code is great; it's a specific solution in erlang.el that's
admittedly a kluge (kludge). I refer specifically to the following comment:

;; Warning, the function `erlang-man-function' is a hack!
;; It links itself into the man code in a non-clean way.  I have
;; chosen to keep it since it provides a very useful functionality
;; which is not possible to achieve using a clean approach.
