In Erlang, message passing between processes is the main/only thing you do.
When every program is built as a set of processes passing messages, you get
free parallelization. You can also arrange the message queuing to allow
hot-replacing processes, i.e. update your code while it's running.
It's a neat concept, but it's not in python's history or culture to
"enforce" programming paradigms. And of course the bit shifting operators
aren't going anywhere.
