[erlang-questions] [ANN] sheriff 0.2: parse transform for type-based data validation

In the short term fixing bugs, adding the missing iolist() and iodata() 
validation and a couple other less documented types.

In the long term it would be nice to find a way to generate validation 
functions also for types found in the Erlang libs, or at least a certain 
subset for the most used of the lot, like the calendar module for example.

I'm open to any and all suggestions at this point.
