Isn't (part of) the point of erlang releases that you don't need erlang pre-installed?

You pay for instances of the VMs and transactional bandwidth. This is what Google AppEngine provides for Java, Python and Go.  I've developed cloud services using Go on Appengine and it was wonderfully clean and simple.
