[erlang-questions] At what point am I "playing compiler"

Hi Dennis,

expressive() will always be 2 times slower than efficient
even if the compiler could reason about lists:foldl:
You use lists:last(List) instead of First = hd(List).

I personally find efficient() also more expressive than expressive().
Perhaps you can use a record -record(summary, {min, man, total}) to
increase the expressiveness.
