So im really displeased to see everyone still closely tied to the "old classic 
high level definition". its dificult to place erlang over a plethora of not 
certainly better languages if all of them are considered equal.

As Paul rants i think the long lisp reluctance is mainly based on such a 
missconception about language expresivennes provided that all being equal 
level so the more C'ish the better.
