Thanks for sharing the project. My thoughts follow.

vim-erlang-runtime[0] output is very close to erlang.el, and it
doesn't suffer from some of the parsing erros of current erlang.el (as
reported on bugs.erlang.org). vim might be more readily available in
your CI env, if you want to automatically check for style regressions.

Also, Bengt's bepp[1][2] looks useful.

However, I think Vlad's sourcer might be the best base for an escript
and plugin, especially because it aims to be forgiving with, say,
unfinished code. This is very important for use in editors.
