Many thanks.  That pointed me in a much better direction.

I've noticed (after you mentioned it) that the standard libraries in the OTP 
distribution adhere to that same type of organization.  Although I may be 
stretching it, would it be safe to say that applications closely resemble the 
idea of a package in Python or Java?

So, just to make sure I understand the terminology, a "system" is a collection 
of interoperating nodes (which could be running on different machines) and a 
"node" is an instance of the Erlang VM which could host multiple 
application/server/etc. processes.  Right?
(Of course my current place of employment uses those terms but with completely 
different meanings ;)
