You could help developing Dynamite (contact Dick van Albada from the
University of Amsterdam for that), perhaps extend it to work with
Python. It's a system to do process migration from node to node in a
really nice way. Once a program is compiled with Dynamite, you can
send it a signal and it'll write it's current state into a new ELF
binary. You can then move that binary to another node in your
distributed system, and execute it as any other executable. The
program will continue to run from where it left off.

The problem with the world is stupidity. Not saying there should be a
capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the
safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?
