Congratulation for the release. Thank you very much for the inclusion  
of patches and fixes, especially copy_hostent and dlopen on MacOS X.  
The inclusion of eunit into OTP is great news! However, as mentioned  
by Kevin Smith, eunit just doesn't work from OTP because eunit.hrl is  

I also wish that the following bug fixes and enhancement were  
included, so we wouldn't have to run patched versions on production  
and test servers:

Fix #1
ei_decode_big just doesn't work for half of big nums.
ei_encode_big and ei_x_encode_big are missing.

Fix #2
ei_decode_fun just doesn't work.

Fix #3
calendar:local_time_to_universal_time_dst crashes on FreeBSD with TZ  
set to UTC, and maybe in other conditions.

Enhancement #1
eunit to generate XML reports for easier integration with continuous  
integration toolchains (e.g. maven-erlang).

Would it be possible to have a timeframe for those?
