Thanks, I hadn't know about Erlang before, but it seems tailor made
for this task.  Provided I'm smart enough to learn functional
programming of course.
The other advantage is that Erlang seems much more accessible than
Stackless in the sense that it's packaged for popular OS's, has RPMs
available, compiles on Mac OS X, etc.
