It seems to me that any sizeable Erlang system is
likely to use several nodes. As these already map to OS
processes, they will be properly handled by symmetric
multi-processing machines. Apart from the very
specialised massively parallel systems, ordinary
hardware is currently in the 2-8 CPU range. This maps
nicely to the order of magnitude of multi-node Erlang
What more do we really want?
