As for me, I was very inattentive reading erlang tutorial and it was a
surprise for me, when following code didn't upgraded after code

f() ->

It is very important to use explicit module specification:

f() ->

?MODULE is a compile time constant, referring to current module and
this form of call will change code on runtime module update.
