Hello Mathematica Users,

>From what I understand Mathematica does not currently offer "seamless"
support for the message passing paradigm in its parallel offerings (I
mean apart from Link*[] primitives, however even then send/receive-
like primitives should be programmed by the user).

Is there some package supplying convenient message passing API atop
MathLink protocol? (start a "cluster" of workers each given its ID,
send/receive primitives, perhaps collective operations (gather/

In some occasions the virtual shared memory paradigm currently offered
in Mathematica is not convenient when porting parallel algorithms laid
down in e.g. MPI.
