If you are interested in this, I think the first step would be to
begin looking over Min's pull request for his new parallel stuff that
uses zmq:


Some of the initial docs for this are here:


I would recommend the following types of things at this point:

* Grab Min's branch and start to read the code and run it.
* Help us to do the code review for the pull request.  This alone is
going to be a huge effort.
* Come up with real life examples problems that can be parallelize
using this.  Study their performance behavior.
* Start to study the design and think about improvements.

I think that by the time you do some/all of these things, you will
have a much better sense of this code and have ideas on next steps to
