Yeah, I remember reading the paper with keen interest, but not sure the
code was ever published:

  "High-Performance Technical Computing with Erlang"
  http://www.erlang.org/workshop/2008/Sess23.pdf

Personally I'd consider OCaml/MLton (running as port program over stdio)
for that kind of task, but then I may be missing the point of this thread
(sorry, didn't follow closely).
