well this list is called debian-beowulf and I don't think
scyld can own the name :) we could change the location
of scyld tools to something like:
beowulf sounds too generic for a single vendor's tools.

Yes, that's the problem.

There are three facets of the problem:

 * generic cluster configuration
 * HPC specific issues
 * HA specific issues

I think we ought to deal with all, but let's not support
HA clusters in any way for now. Let's just concentrate
on beowulf and see what we can do about it. That is, let's
support supercomputing apps *only*.
