Not dismissing it here, I'd be happy to have both, but maps are solving
a problem (dict manipulation is incredibly tedious and time consuming in
Erlang) while frames simply improve what we already have.
Personally not having maps prevents me from doing a particular project,
unless I want to spend all my time manipulating dicts of dicts or
records of records. Hence my only question about the maps proposal about
recursive updating being built-in.
Not having frames just requires me to know about a few pitfalls, but
doesn't prevent me to get the job done.
