  There is already "Erlang-style concurrency" in Chicken via the MPI

IIRC there's more to it than that. As well as passing messages back
and forth, Erlang also has mechanisms for passing uncaught exceptions
in the top-levels of processes back to processes waiting for messages
from that process... or something like that. Something that prevents
deadlock situations where a client thread is waiting for a response
from a server thread that dies, without extra programmer effort, anyway.

Also, is the MPI process-management model the same as Erlang's?
That's another important facet.
