Shared/Hybrid Heap

Hi,

does anyone know if there's any progress concerning shared/hybrid heap 
in Erlang ? I'm prototyping data-intensive app in Erlang and suspect 
that using hybrid/shared heap would have huge impact at least in terms 
of memory consumption and.

Btw. do I understand it right that "shared" here means that everything 
is allocated on shared heap and "hybrid" that only what is analysed to 
be sent is allocated there (as described in R. Carlsson et al.: Message 
analysis for concurrent languages) ?

Thanks.
