I'm no expert but I've used the message passing concurrency
in MzScheme and O'Caml, but inspired by Concurrent ML. 
They are pretty much equivalent, with MzScheme being a bit
easier to use.

AFAIK the reall difference that Erlang has is the
infrastructure to support concurrent development -- the
debuggers, process inspectors, Mnesia etc.
