[erlang-questions] calling FUN from NIF

There is currently no such behavior in the API. For the moment your
best bet would be to write an Erlang shim that responded to messages
from the NIF that would be written in to be resumable or uses threads
to communicate with the Erlang VM.

On the other hand, there are planned enhancements to the NIF api to
allow such awesomeness. See Rickard's talk at [1].
