I actually don't mind digging in and spending the time showing what I  
mean with code (although the barrier here is much higher since I don't  
know erlang at all...)

But I am a little worried that if the "project lead" and "gatekeepers"  
are even *thought* by active members of the community to be dead-set  
against it that I would be wasting time.

I think it's an important issue (clearly or I wouldn't be spending so  
much vacation time discussing it), but it's not a make-or-break issue  
for me.
