I went looking for said paper and it's extremely hard to find.
After hunting on google for 10 minutes with keywords like "abstract patterns",
"abstract patterns erlang", "abstract patterns o'keefe", I eventually
found 2 other papers which reference "Abstract Patterns for Erlang"
by Richard O'Keefe, so that must be it, right?  Well another google
search returns 3 results

http://www.google.com/search?q=%22Abstract+Patterns+for+Erlang%22&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a

None of which are the paper.  However the 3rd link eventually leads to

http://www.erlang.org/ml-archive/erlang-questions/200309/msg00309.html

Which includes a paper with the title "Pattern Abstraction" apparently
by Richard O'Keefe.

So maybe that's the so called paper, or maybe there is another one out
there?
