that's only if design and notation don't matter, and they do.
to start with, is any form of concurrency compatible with an object-oriented language?

or again: Erlang is a little gem; Java is a dung heap. why hide the one inside the other?
i just don't get it.  it's not even as though (as with C, say) you'd thereby be getting
access to a great set of run-time libraries.
