[erlang-questions] very large networks of erlang nodes?

Does anybody have experience running an Erlang environment consisting of 
100s, 1000s, or more nodes, spread across a network?

I'm thinking about applications like  and , that 
distribute processing tasks across huge numbers of PCs, taking advantage 
of shared cycles to run long-running, data intensive jobs that can be 
parallelized -- and more generally about the BOINC platform 
(http://boinc.berkeley.edu).

Seems to me that Erlang would be a great platform for such things.  Sort 
of wondering if anybody has played with anything along such lines.
