[erlang-questions] erlang sucks

A rather disappointing article. Erlang does have warts, but of the 8  
points made in the article, only 3 are valid in my opinion: the ones  
on records, documentation, and perhaps code organization. The  
documentation situation, for one, is bound to improve as the number  
of Erlang programmers grows. The other two probably will too, given  
enough push.

The important thing is that Erlang gets the hard fundamental stuff  
right. The rest can be improved with time.
