does R run on the intel phi coprocessor?  the intel literature makes
it seem as if it can be treated just like a 50-core 200-thread
just-like-i686 processor running linux, albeit with only 8GB of very
fast shared RAM.  some posts have suggested it can be 2-3 times as
fast as two high-end Intel Xeon 8-core machines.  how do simple
library(parallel) R tasks scale on it?
