I'm not really sure I understand what you are talking about.

I'd just recommend, before you start implement anything new, you
look at options that are already available for parallel computing
and interprocess communication in Octave and Octave Forge, for example:


and if those packages do not have the features you are looking for,
you start by implementing those missing features that you personally need.

looks interesting but I'm not really sure how I would use that myself.
Personally I'd rather stick to standard APIs for parallel algorithms like OpenMP
and MPI if possible.
