[erlang-questions] Deprecation and removal of the non-smp emulator

First use case I thought of when I heard this news was 'erlc' itself :).
It disables smp by default, right?

This gives a few milliseconds speedup in startup time when booting the
VM which is mostly a non-issue but nice for cli tools.

Because of tasks like common test, dialyzer and in the future if we add
back parallel compile (for the most common case, only building a few
files, it is much faster to just build sequentially) we can't use non-
smp by default with rebar3. But I figured I'd throw this out there in
case anyone was looking to speed up the boot time :)
