Unfortunately, these features are not around the corner and wont be part
of the R15 release. We have had to prioritize other things. We still
plan to implement these features, but currently I cannot say anything
about when to expect them to show up. The only thing I can say is that a
fully supported, non-experimental version will not show up until at
Rickard Green, Erlang/OTP, Ericsson AB
