Even disregarding for the moment the question why would "the dialyzer 
people" care about lfe, joxa, et al., (dialyzer: Discrepancy Analyzer of 
*Erlang* code) if you are not more specific than the above wish how 
exactly do you expect them to know about the details of possible hooks 
that are needed by non-standard uses of dialyzer by other more exotic 
languages out there?

Better yet, dialyzer's code base is on github, and thus one can submit 
patches (hint, hint!) that have a very good chance of being included in 
its code base if they do not break dialyzer's current functionality and 
come with tests that ensure that the extra functionality will not be 
accidentally broken in the future.

Cheers,
Kostis
