This is a really good idea from a learning point of view, since relying on
baked solutions here reaps you of the knowledge at the lower levels, which
is important to have. What I would steal though, is the notion that the
libraries can be separate applications in the same Erlang VM. This allows
you to evolve them independently of each other. And if you keep a module in
each application which is the interface, you can make it way easier for
yourself in the long run.
