Subject: Can coThreads be used for message passing architecture?

I have had only a quick look at the web page but I did not understand
whether and how can coThreads be used on a cluster of independent
computers (Beowulf-style) that are only connected by network (no
shared memory) for which I normally use MPI (message passing). 
Is coThreads usable in such a scenario? What is the backend - does it
run on the top of PVM, MPI, or similar?

Thanks for clarification.
