Last I remember, the labeling indicates how the internal applications 
and utilities are packaged.

I might have these backwards in my head, but IIRC:

- The "esl-erlang" package has everything rolled into one bundle. This 
is a Bad Thing in some communities (and not everyone wants everything).
- The "erlang" package is the start of a set that packages each utility 
and application separately across different rpms.
