Most of the supervisor code is old/old-fashioned, I had my hands in there not too long ago ^^; That said, as it is a very central component to OTP, there is understandably some reluctance to change the battle-tested-by-time old code just for the sake of following the latest trends ;)

Open an issue at That's more likely to catch their attention than the mailing list ;)
