I see. Still, it seems the frontend (language) changes are only minimal,
while quite a lot needs to be done in terms of backend work to support this.
Could anyone familiar with the Octave internals comment on what  it
would take to support parallel execution (in the sense of multiple
octave instances executing tasks dispatched from a single frontend
session (akin to the architecture described in
slides 9-10) ? In other words, what does it take for Octave to support
MPI-style parallelism ?
