Hi!

Well the main problem with Erlang-implemented carriers are that when
the distribution is started the system is in such an early
stage that you can not start Erlang applications. The way we solved
this for ssl is that we have a special supervisor that we hook
into the kernel application  that will create a cloone of the ssl
application. The drawback with this is that you can not soft upgrade
the ssl-application
if you use ssl as distribution carrier (of course if you do not use
ssl for the distribution soft upgrade will be possible in R15).
