I hadn't heard of this implementation, but the ECMA standard briefly  
describes an optional System.Threading.Parallel assembly that  
neither .NET nor Mono provided.
I started an implementation in Spring but for time reasons didn't  
parallelize it. I'd be happy to donate the code for Mono as a stub, so  
"basic" compilation/execution support could theoretically be provided  
pretty soon... while a full HPC-grade implementation will likely take  
some longer. ;-)

My plan was to use the Adapter pattern to allow multiple (pluggable)  
backends, i.e. single-threaded, multi-threaded, MPI, etc. That should  
make it very easy to scale.
