If I wanted to explore using a cluster of 3rd-party kernels, such as
IHaskell or ICalico, in a parallel environment, where would I begin?
Has anyone done this before?
I see here:
that kernels connect to a controller to create an engine. If the
standard ipcontrollers can start up external kernels, I guess a place
to begin might be implementing what the %px magic does?
