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.

Write up and code can be found at
