That's similar to what I did with "taskRunner"
- a (could be headless) server which would accept commands, including
- load stack
- dispatch command to stack
and would return the results of those commands
- a client library to find and send commands to any such servers
I got it working (enough for my needs), but haven't yet made it into an
easy-to-use tool for everyone. Use it almost every day - both for long
running, boring tasks on my space PC and to use the multi-cores in my
macbook for cpu intensive tasks.
