And as a more general question, how could Erlang improve its
performance on problems like chameneos-redux?

http://shootout.alioth.debian.org/u32q/benchmark.php?test=chameneosredux&lang=hipe&id=1

This is a benchmark where Erlang's poor performance sticks out like a
sore thumb.  The frontrunners (on the quad-core benchmark) are
Haskell, C++, Scala, C, and Java.  Erlang comes in dead last.

A school of thought seems to exist that because Erlang fares poorly on
these sorts of problems that you shouldn't even try to use Erlang to
address them, and that's not a school of thought I particularly like.
