[erlang-questions] Elixir vs. Erlang

I love Elixir, but I love Erlang, too.  In my opinion, there's little
enough to justify the change in language, and certainly little enough in
the capabilities to even justify giving it thought.  The only reason I
choose Elixir over Erlang for much of my work is that I prefer mix to Rebar
and I like the macro capabilities of Elixir.

My 5 cents.
