doesn't tapestry sound like it should be written in erlang?

This is a bit like those Apple ads a few years back:
"In Windows 95, you can delete files by dragging them to a trash can.
Imagine that..."

"In Windows 95, you can have file names longer than 8 characters.
Imagine that..."


It made for cute commercials, but in the end, it probably didn't make
a difference. People still thought it was a novelty to be able to use
a trashcan icon on the desktop, and half the world probably still
believes Bill Gates invented the concept.  ;-)
