Process isolation is another reason as to why you want to take a look at
splitting up stuff. If you runs the processing loop in a separate process,
it can be easier to handle the case where that part of the system crashes.
In other situations, there are advantages to writing a single gen_fsm with
a separate reply back to the caller. It really depends on the situation
what is the best course of action :)
