[erlang-questions] Serfdom erlang implementation (gossip client)?

Mitchell Hashimoto (author of Vagrant and Packer) has another project, it
is serf.

Serf is an implementation of protocol that maintains cluster of nodes.
Sounds like a replacement to erlang distribution, but it is a bit different.

At first, it doesn't do any magic interconnection with transparent Pid and
message passing to other nodes. It only maintains persistence of nodes in a
more probabilistic manner (UDP pinging).

Has anyone looked at it? Maybe someone has tried to implement it?

I'm interested in this approach because it doesn't require to give full
access to local system for remote user as it happens with erlang
