Thanks a lot for the reference.
You've got to love this sentence from the abstract:

    scalability can be improved by reducing lock contention.

We all _know_ that fire is hot and water is wet, but sometimes
it's nice to see it proved...

It looks as though the claim that Erlang runs out of steam at 16
is a furphy, and that there are good ideas about how to make it
even better.
