if epp (and others that desperately want a file) also handled an IO 
object (as returned from file:open/2) the problem would go away. i would 
expect epp to use file:open/2 on the file and then the IO object in the 
rest of the code so the change would not be great.

unless epp does a file:read_file/1 to get all of the file into memory, 
of course. then epp should be able to handle a binary instead of a file 
with out any great change.

Those were the days...
