Parallel programming with snowFT

Our package snowFT is now available at CRAN. It is an extention of the
package snow, which adds fault tolerance (in the sense of recomputing
computational units when hardware/network failures occur on compute
nodes) and a tighter notion of reproducibility for computations
running on clusters.  It additionally provides tools for flexible
management of cluster size as well as computation transparency.

snowFT is written by Hana Sevcikova and Tony Rossini.

(this tool currently requires rpvm for the SNOW backend, though we are
exploring the possibility of extensions for the Rmpi backend.  It is
unlikely that these extensions will be implemented for the socket
