[erlang-questions] Erlang NFS client

Just a historical note.

This code was initially written by me. With improvements by Martin Björklund,
Luke Gorrie wrote the NFS  examples. Later the code was "stolen" by Sendmail.

I was really upset when I heard that Sendmail had put copyright on "my" code, 
the reason was very business driven "The boss decided that we had to do it" :-)

(anyone with the more info about this could fill in the embarrassing facts)

I will probably steel it back again, but for now just ignore the Copyright.

Well well

"Installing applications can lead to corruption over time. Applications gradually write over each other's libraries, partial upgrades occur, user and system errors happen, and minute changes may be unnoticeable and difficult to fix"
