Thanks for the lead to Proactive. I'll take a look at it.
Most of my work these days is in biological modeling, which means ~100s
of thousands of relatively homogenous agents per simulation. Coarse
grained simulation (the kind manageable by "shell scripts and rsh",
though I prefer MPI) has worked for me so far. But, I'm about to embark
on a project that might require a much more fine granularity, or more
accurately multi-grain hierarchical agents. I'm just looking for an
evolutionary path to bridge from the current grain to the finer grain.
