Erlang vs C++ for Robust Telecom Software

"... As the Erlang DCC is less than a quarter of the size of a similar C++/CORBA implementation, the product development in Erlang should be fast, and the code maintainable. We conclude that Erlang and associated libraries are suitable for the rapid development of maintainable and highly reliable distributed products."

Are High-level Languages suitable for Robust Telecoms Software? (pdf) also High-Level Techniques for Distributed Telecommunications Software

Also Distributed Haskell?

The group page, and the "Further Work" section of this paper mention Distributed Haskell, but I haven't found any published work. Phil Trinder's GdH page says that a paper comparing all three languages is in preparation.
