Decimal was one of the one I was going to bring up :). That and Timex and postgrex.
The issue I see is, while these may work fine with `rebar_mix`you have to have Elixir installed. This can be fine on a project that isn't a publicly shared lib, it can be awkward for those publicly shared libs.
While an Elixir user will always already have Erlang, the reverse isn't true.
If Elixir could be a rebar3 dependency this issue would go away and I think increase the chances of Erlang projects utilizing Elixir libs.
