Hi Simon,

sure, if people find that useful.
It has been some time since I used Rserve last, and that was also only using one 
Rserve server.
Is there any specific info we should familiarize ourselves with, when we want to 
test that?
Simply assume that the cluster has multiple Rserve instances running and execute 
the appropriate code on those by connecting to them?
