Since communication between Erlang process does not depend on the
location of the process, this was not a limitation. You just ran one
Erlang Node per processor. Granted, you needed to a little bit of work
to distribute the processes. But if you're looking to take advantage
of distribution (with an eye to scalability), you'd do that anyway.
