Process migration and load balancing in clusters

I've always been fascinated with distributed systems (such as Sprite) that
can handle transparent process migration and load balancing in a cluster
of workstations. The kernel modifications for doing this on Linux are not
exactly trivial, of course; it would probably require changing a lot of
internal interfaces. But I've been toying with the idea of experimenting
with this, either on Linux or some other system, perhaps Mach-based.
Anybody given any thought to this sort of thing?
