I would like to hear your opinions on the usefulness of creating a
small-footprint Erlang VM.
Compared with Java, Erlang *is* small-footprint.
The smallest program I've ever managed to run with Sun's Java
(on a Sun machine) was 32MB of virtual memory; Erlang is 7MB.
Now that's with a whole lot of OTP stuff running (for example,
there's space reserved for ets, although I have no ets tables
in this test case).
Presumably the best approach would be to start with Stand-Alone Erlang.
