With multiprocessing, using Pool.imap_unordered to apply a computation 
function to a list of parameter sets is one good alternative. (IIRC, it 
balances load between subprocesses &c automatically.) Multiprocessing can 
however work on only one node at a time.

With mpi4py, it's probably best to write a simple master-slave
