There have been at least three other very-close-to-Erlang implementations
that saw the light of day: EtoS (Erlang to Scheme) and EC by Maurice
Castro of SERC at RMIT (back when there _was_ a SERC). See
about EC. Hmm; there was also GERL (Geoff's Erlang). I've no idea
what Laurie Brown and Maurice Castro are up to these days.
I'm aware of a couple of other partial implementations which were never
shipped. At various times I've had copies of GERL and ETOS but would
have a hard time finding them now; the Real Thing is so hard to keep up

Doesn't look like it.

That I can't help with.
