Greetings,

One good (IMHO) critique of packages, as they are currently implemented, 
is found here:
http://www.erlang.org/pipermail/erlang-questions/2006-November/023782.html

On the other hand, packages, even as they are currently implemented, 
would make it possible to rewrite the libraries. That could also be done 
with the '.' replaced with '_' so it is not a very good argument. But I 
really would like to rewrite them.

Those were the days...

    solely in a computer program then the subject matter is not
    patentable in whatever manner it may be presented in the claims."
