Re: Common Message Runtime

I have had similar thoughts over the past few months. After playing around with Erlang, I simply cannot understand why you would handle concurrency any other way! Its such a joy compared to most of the alternatives, and I would absolutely love it if Python 2.6 or Python 3000 included a similar method of handling concurrency, and used Erlang's message passing format as well. I am actually very surprised that no one has mentioned something like this on the Python 3000 mailing lists yet... although I am not sure that Guido would buy into it.
