Have you considered how to avoid cyclic remote references, anything  
positive into this direction would be valuable for (currently) a small  
group of people ;) TIA.

We discuss and make plans for implementing models analogous to yours, with  
multiple Smalltalk .images, each with own native thread, on n-core  
machines. We recently found one model which apparently cannot avoid cyclic  
remote references :(
