Subject distributed Ant w/ javaspaces

I was thinking, would it be possible/desirable for Ant to be able to
farm off work to different processors?

This could be an interesting application of Javaspaces
(http://www.javaworld.com/javaworld/jw-11-1999/jw-11-jiniology_p.html).
There could be a company-wide "compute server", which would make use
of spare cycles from tetris-playing managers on pIIIs. When Ant gets
invoked, it would decide what can be safely parallelised, and farm
that off to the "compute server".

Just dreaming..
