Yeah, I remember the discussions on it. *laugh*

In the scheme of all things Erlang though, I wouldn't classify it as
something stopping adoption or causing confusion. I like the "concept"
of packages or, more specifically, being able to write code such as
"namespace1.module2:foo(bar)" without having to quote the atoms. But as
far as next(erlang) is concerned, it could be on the back-burner
compared to inconsistent interfaces and the like.

Also, Robert, I was interested in your disagreement with Kenneth (RE:
the need for an Erlang refactor) you said you would put together... is
that still coming?
