Hi, have not really been following that thread and just now (yes, I know)
saw the reference in Torben's original message that his son thought that
elixir looked like Lua. While I don't really agree with that there is an
obvious solution that will make it even better:

We do Potion which is a new language on the BEAM+OTP with a Lua inspired
syntax instead. This would have many benefits:

- It would make it much easier for a large group of programmers to get into
the erlang fold.
- The syntax would be simpler that elixir and would avoid some of its
idiosyncrasies.
- Lua is a fun language to start with.

So who would be interested in joining me to do Potion, a new language for
the Erlang VM?

Robert
