As someone building a commercial project in Erlang, I can confirm that
doing anything production-ready in Erlang requires (re)writing a *ton*
of code which in other languages would be available in the standard
library. And do not even get me started on the tooling (or more
accurately lack thereof).

It is not a deal breaker, I can work around it and accept it because the
language itself is very good, but denying this reality is not
productive. This situation actively damages Erlang adoption.
