I was wondering whether the Erlang user community would care
to comment on the following:

In a function like:

	test(A) ->
	    a + 42.

which is either crap (arguably) or a typo (A vs a), how many
Erlang users:

 1. Are content with the current situation where the compiler
	happily compiles this program
 2. Would like to see a warning, but a .beam file generated
 3. Would prefer if the compiler in R10 refused to compile it

Notice I am not talking about any serious attempt to static
type checking, but for really "basic" checks.
