erl.exe don't handle completion, (i.e. TAB is a \t) and runs in
werl.exe is autonomous, you can change the font, you have completion
erl.exe is needed to launch a service (see erlsrv)
werl.exe is the prefered window shell.
Finally experiment yourself, you'll find that werl is the only way to
go on windows...
