we are doing some computations with MPI and Rmpi. Therefore papply is a 
very comfortable function.
Is it possible to reuse calculated data on slaves?

We do some calculation with papply,
then we have to do some overall calculation at the master
then we want to do some calculation on the slaves with the old results 
and some new results from the master.

We do not want to send all data again from master to slave (time 
expensive). Is there a way to do this with papply?
