I think this could be a really good addition to Erlang if done right

I think this would be really good. Together with some examples it would 
give us some idea what we would be able to do

I read it all the way through. It was pretty easy to read, but in order 
to be able to give good comments is really hard without having something

would be hard to express. It is difficult to get a feel for this by just 
reading the document.
