 From some of the responses I have been getting it is clear that my 
comment about an "Executive Function Supervisor" is misleading:  the 
"supervisor" I am envisaging is not an AGI in some way and is not doing 
the actual work - it would be more like the "traffic cop" directing the 
work to the appropriate place - the first thing is being able to direct 
lots of incoming text messages to Java servers and sending outgoing 
messages back to the Web Front End (stuff that Erlang should be good 
at).  I also thought it might be able to manage the automatic creation 
and removal of virtual Java servers -  it would be a load manager in 
that sense - starting other background (intelligent parsing of large 
amounts of text data etc) processes when load was low etc.  I will 
update the doc so it is a bit clearer.
