Structs? In my Erlang?

Hi,

I've stumbled upon a small commented out Erlang feature, tagged tuples called structs [1]. After further investigation, I've found out some comments saying it's a future feature which hasn't been completed yet [2].

Where it gets interesting is that this comment was already there in R6B0, which was released in 1999 [3].

So is that a feature that should be finished, superseded by frames or should it be entirely removed?
Please note that the commented out code isn't even up to date now [4].
