If Erlang inherited the syntax of prolog, you would not need to develop 
LFE!

Off: The operator-notation and the functor-concept of Prolog has all the 
advantages of LISP's syntax (i.e. code=data), but makes the code look 
nice. IMHO a language with all the power of LISP, plus Prolog's 
operator syntax plus Erlang-style concurrency would be great alloy.
