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