Isn't anybody on list using this already?  Seems like they would be.
Looks like a scyldoid beowulf thing, and actually looks pretty nice.
Maybe a good thing for the Monkey to look into as well.  Might even try
it myself -- I'm writing a really involved (and ultracool) GUI driven
program with a clearly parallelizable component at the moment, and while
I haven't quite gotten the core loop running under the GUI (maybe today
-- writing nonblocking GUI apps requiring both threads and a state-based
interface on a SINGLE CPU -- and I'm actually importing/GUIifying old
code that ran single threaded from an ascii command line) I'm thinking
ahead to the day that I use the same GUI to fork off multiple core loops
on multiple systems under a common control.
