No.  Not by anyone I can name on this list.  But if you want it, I
encourage you to give it a shot.  Most of the things people post about
wanting to this mailing list, they could probably write themselves if
they set themselves to it rather than to posting.

Put a Stackless Python interpreter on each core.  Make aware of each
other.  Then pickle the tasklets you  want to move to other cores, and
send them there.  Do the same across sockets to other cores on other
computers on the network.  There are some technical issues involved in
which tasklets can be pickled in this way, but finding out what they
are is half the fun.

Then I hope you will find value in giving it a shot.
