[erlang-questions] Erlang and the TDS protocol

Dear list,

I am curious why there isn't a native Erlang TDS protocol implementation.
Even /otp/lib wraps a C ODBC implementation using a port.
Would this not be simpler and more concise using bit syntax, since the TCP
datagram unpacks in 1 line of code (more for readability, of course)?
It just seems like extra work: C wraps the msg, port wraps C, ODBC app
wraps port etc. There is a lot of 'wrapping' going on.

Any input would be much appreciated.

Kind regards,
Marcel
