Hello. I've been looking into this topic for a while
and I ran across the Spread project (spread.org). Anyway,
many core Python people are hanging out there so I figure
its probably the best message bus available... at least
the perl/python wrappers are already there. Anyway, I have
no clue how this would fit into WebKit, but I can imagine
rewriting mod_webkit to use spread. And then modify AppServer
to listen for messages on the spread bus... the advantage
is that you could then distribute loads over several servers.

Do you see any advantage of Spread as compared to simply programming,
perhaps, a round-robin system into mod_webkit/Adapter.py (where it
directs requests to different AppServers)? With the features that
people have mentioned -- mostly just putting the machine in the SID so
that you can use local sessions -- I don't really see any big flaw.
Well, I suppose you need to deal with failures and such... but it should
still be fairly simple, and at that point basically feature-complete.
