Parallel Programming

Obviously Erlang is not made to do computationally intensive work such 
as computing primes or what not.  However I was thinking that Erlang 
obviously makes an excellent framework for doing that kind of work.
I was thinking one could use erlang to communicate between nodes and 
then use a port to a fortran program or what not.
Obviously I doubt I'm the first person to think of this, so has anyone 
else attempted this or have any suggestions as it if it is a good idea 
or not?

Thanks
