[erlang-questions] HEART

Dear list,
I'm a little confused and would like to understand whether the HEART command should be used or not. 

In non-erlang systems, I would have standard watchdogs that launch an application on OS boot, and then monitor it and relaunch it if necessary. 

What is the best practice in the erlang world? A script to start an erlang release at boot time, and use the HEART command? Others?

The warning in the docs makes me hesitate.

Any input welcome. 

Thanks!
r.
