[erlang-questions] How to efficiently set the bit at position Index to 1 in a binary?

Much clear to me now.
There's no recursion in set/2, so I can live with that :-)

The only time you have any reason to go through great troubles to optimize this away is when the compiler cannot optimize a match operation that you perform on each iteration over a binary of unknown length.
