[erlang-questions] Execute in Place

I was curious if anyone had tried running Erlang via Execute in Place (ie
NOR Flash).  The faq mentions running in 16MByte of RAM;  Can part of this
be Read Only Memory?  The idea would be to store the BEAM files themselves
in a way that the emulator can directory execute them (but not modify

A related question is this:  When the emulator loads a BEAM file, does it
do any kind of transformation?  Or is it simply copied into RAM?

Any thoughts/concerns/suggestions are greatly appreciated.
