ERLANG like actors model

Learning scala (scala-lang.org) at the moment I realize that there are some very nice concepts in this language. Unfortunately scala (scala is a jvm language) and all the java stuff fits not so well into the computer vision domain – mainly because of speed ;(
One concept I really like very much is the “Actors Model” – the Actors Model makes concurrent programming a piece of cake. I would really love to see a well baked AM addon for Openframeworks - or even better build it into the core.

I already did some research about the topic and found these booth libraries:
http://theron.ashtonmason.net/index.php
http://sourceforge.net/projects/acedia/
… I would like to help to implement these in a OF kind of way, but I don’t feel that I have the experience to get out a well designed lib for my own.

any help would be appreciated.
