This is missing the point somewhat. I could care less about what other  
people think of my programs. I'm writing them for myself and I'm  
looking to make _my_ job easier. If I need to train someone then I'll  
do so.

Plus, Lisp folk have been dealing with custom languages forever now.  
Creating DSLs in Lisp is very much encouraged.

What makes Erlang different?
