Given I'm apparently targeted here, I'm going to ask you to kindly go screw yourself. My remark was not snide in the least and a simple answer to a commenter asking whether his solution was thought as "plain bad or just a newbie mistake/error".

It was also highly mitigated by concerns about the discoverability of the Erlang documentations

Again, screw you.
