Ah but that's cheating isn't it?  :)

Here's what I do:


init(_) ->
	{ok, gb_trees:empty()}.

handle_call(Fun, From, State) ->
	Pid = proc_lib:spawn(Fun),
	{noreply, gb_trees:insert(Pid, From)}.

handle_info({Pid, Result}, State) ->
	gen_server:reply(gb_trees:get(Pid, State), Result),
	{noreply, gb_trees:delete(Pid, State)}.
