Wasn't aware of it but read through the README. It seems to be missing some pretty important
functionality (like views).

Because I'm not an Erlang programmer. I'm not much of a Scala programmer, either, but I know
Java well enough to do fairly intricate things.

I could probably learn to leverage Erlang but I can't learn a new language for every tool
I want to use. It doesn't make a lot of sense to me to write all the application layers in
different languages. That makes it very, very difficult for the person(s) coming after me.
