Even seems to be active too - there's a changelog entry that relates to 
making it run on R9B.
Not sure why it isn't advertised more... anyway, it should scale Yaws to 
multiple machines with little effort. (Doesn't seem to help with 
utilizing multi-processor machines though... that seems to be something 
that should be done at the VM level.)
