No moreso than are people who use the word "bullschildt".  It's just
what I believe is frank and honest, in context.

You don't.  However, erlang has side effects, so this isn't germane.

Things in C aren't available in erlang.  Of course, in the mail you're
replying to, I already explicitly suggested a port.

Perhaps I was unclear.  I don't think it can be done in adequate
performance.  That's why I haven't already done it.
