Hmm. Is this really what Erlang misses most of all? I can think of a least
25 (or was it 250) things which should be added/updated/fixed before going
for this one.
An unofficial top-ten (top-hundred) list of wanted/fixable language features
would actually be interesting to have around. We could even make it pollable
by people on this list. It could be good input to the OTP team.
I suppose that "Parameterised modules" wouldn't even be on a top-250 list.
My list that is.
I will say no more.
