I too am interested in this area of work. While a parallel version is my 
ultimate aim (or at the very least - two processes running a 
bidirectional dijkstra algorithm), having a standard A* functional base 
to work from would be nice.

On the other hand, algorithms like this have tended to be implemented in 
native code from my experience, so I would not be surprised if there is 
no functional version out there (as in usable source code) as yet.
