This update is fully API/ABI compatible with previous monolithic
package and smoothly upgradeable from previous version, so I don't see
any problems here from user's point of view. From the packager's side
- every package, depending on erlang, will remain working.

To be honest, I also pursuing my own goals, when insisting on pushing
this update to F-12, since my primary working machines (on which I do
most part of Fedora-related tasks) are powerpc-based, and F-13 for
PowerPC still doesn't exist.

With best regards, Peter Lemenkov.
