Thanks for the pointers!  Very impressive piece of work -- it will
help me very much with my batch jobs and I'll be watching it as it
matures.  Impressive scatter/gather interface, too -- very clean.

There was a bit of a hangup when running ipcluster -- on my MacBook,
if you put it in the background right away, the process is stopped
immediately before the script has a chance to set up the controller
and spawn the engines:

$ ipcluster -n 4 &
[1] 450
$ Starting controller: Controller PID: 452
[1]+  Stopped                 ipcluster -n 4
$

Since it is stopped and the engines aren't created, trying to use it fails.

I have to run 'ipcluster -n <num>' in the foreground, let it set up
the engines, suspend it (CTRL-Z) and put it in the background for
things to work nicely.  Is there any way around this?  Not a big deal,
just wondering if I'm doing anything wrong.

Thanks again!

Kurt
