Yep, I figured that out from reading Yariv's earlier postings. The
thing is I am trying to use Erlang for the web and present tutorials
that do not require having to to cobble together stuff from 12
different sources. One source is ideal, three is the max. I think.

I am some what surprised that neither Yaws or Erlang Web have database
layers given that they seem to be the most mature of all web oriented
projects. Without this, learning Erlang via web development is going
to be harder than I thought.
