[erlang-questions] State in webmachine

As far as I understand in webmachine the state (they call it context) is 
only passed among the different webmachine resource functions e.g. you 
build up your state in the init/1 function, which you can later use in 
e.g. process_post. Once the request is handled the state is destroyed, 
as it makes sense for a stateless protocol such as http. If you really 
need shared state I would suggest to use a process holding your state or 
just take an ets table.
