This does make me think of icecream (not the cold stuff!), which
I've just found out about by coincidence. icecream  is a distributed
compilation daemon and scheduler like distcc but a bit more
intelligent - so with a bit of help it can cope with cross
compilation and those kind of things. You're looking at things from
a much more general point of view (any job/process rather than just
compilation, and for the point of reliability rather than increased
speed), but I imagine that it'd still be of interest to you.

That'd be great!
