[IPython-dev] Win32 IPython1?

Hello - this may be the wrong list for this question;  if so my 
apologies.  My next Python excursion involves a simple "parallel 
programming" problem - I am trying to put together Python controller and 
server modules for very coarse-grain parallel processing of GIS and 
remote sensing data using existing Win32 GIS and remote sensing software 
tools running in WinXP on a classroom cluster.  The Win32 COM Python 
tools are fine for local control of these interactive applications and 
I'm trying to find an existing "parallel" network controller toolkit 
that will work in the Win32 world, either native or through Cygwin.  
(The controller environment can be Linux of course.)  I've tried some of 
the "grid" style tools for cluster management that claim to run in 
Cygwin, and found them to be clumsy (batch-oriented) and unreliable.  I 
am now looking into IPython1, and I'd like to know if there is any 
experience with it in a Win32 environment.

Any suggestions would be welcome.

Thanks again -
