You should look at Java-spaces - which is a Java-fied version of the LISA C
It would be cool if the CPython version were compatible with the
C library, and the Jython version with Javaspaces. One application of
these APIs is distributed computation with many processors. For instance,
a supervisor process hands out pixels to compute. Render threads grab a
pixel location from the job jar and ray-trace it through the scene graph
to produce a pixel value. Python and C processes would mix well, with
Python supervisor and C render code. (It is neat to see the distributed
rendering in action - some pixels are fast to compute, and with others the
ligth ray bounces around quite a while. As a result, the rendered scene
kind of fades into view. I have never worked with such a system - only
