This is perfectly true.  But if the Java and Haskell experiences
are anything to go by, it WILL become deep whether it needs to
or not.  We can confidently expect people experienced in Java to
continue using Java naming practices in Erlang.  (Heck, haven't
we already seen enough pointlessly ugly baStudlyCaps trickling
into Erlang like pus from an Erebus-sized boil?)
