What about thrift http://thrift.apache.org/

It's RPC style so you describe function calls, erlang clients are easy,
the objective-c server would be generated for you (other than the
body of the function).

I've been using thrift to talk java->erlang and erlang->java, so
talking erlang->objective-c should be straightforward.

Some examples http://wiki.apache.org/thrift/ThriftUsageObjectiveC
