It's much easier to say "An AMP command with a 'foo' String argument and a 'bar' Integer argument" than to say "The first two bytes of the message are the length of the first argument.  The next n bytes are the first argument.  The first argument shall be interpreted as... (etc, etc)"
I'm working on an interface right now to the spread toolkit, 
(http://spread.org), which implements virtual synchrony, 

For distributed, symmetric, fault tolerant parallelism in small to 
medium scale with high reliability, this might be an option.
