Same here, except that (unfortunately) I did found things where Erlang is not
only "not suitable", but practically impossible to use[*]. However, this doesn't
affect my relationship with Erlang! :-)


[*] I refer to massive number-crunching. I have written very elegant solutions,
but one just can't handle lists of some million of items... Should mutable
binaries become part of the family, then it might work!
