It seems to me that it can be implemented for a shared memory system. Why
not? But it's been designed with distributed memory in mind. So, I suppose
writing to shared memory could be slow. It'd be sort of like implementing
synchronization on top of a message passing system. Although I can see that
reading is OK. I would still like a nice and sound source-level support for
shared memory, if possible :) Do not all of us need such a feature? My cores
are idle. That's a pity. Yes, I did use ocamlmpi to get some speedup on
shared memory, but it's not the same thing. I shouldn't have to go back to
C++ just for implementing a shared memory algorithm.
