Boo, hiss.  do you have any relevant links to substantiate this?

It's somewhat moot for me anyway since most of my home kit doesn't seem to 
have available clients anyway.

There is the OpenMOSIX cluster at $WORK ... the only way I'd be able to do 
that is if there were a command line option to do only so many "work 
units" (or whatever their lingo is) or have an option to run for a set 
period of time and then quit.  Lots of idle cycles after hours but I can't 
have something like this running during regular hours.
