[Beowulf] Erlang as a language for Beowulf applications

I have been exploring a range of technologies for parallel
applications, some production-level, some experimental.

I am curious if anyone on this list has done any work
with the language Erlang and/or considers it viable
for scientific apps. It seems to be quite mature, has
well developed 'process' based semantics with intrinsic message
passing, is light-weight for multi-process creation,
support application-level fault tolerance (quite applicable
for failures in long computations...)
and is production level, though not well known in the US.

Any comments?
