Bug Description

Binary package hint: erlang

The erlang-base package includes both a uniprocessor and multiprocessor version of the BEAM emulator.

n order to minimise the size of the base runtime, it would be nice if one could be removed from erlang-base. If beam.smp is functional on uniprocessor systems, it is probably worth keeping that version in erlang-base and removing or splitting out the uniprocessor version.
