Sounds good.  

But as one can (with some care) use OpenMP with R itself, it should be
possibly to use it (with some care) from RInside as well.

And then building blocks can be combined: use OpenMPI to deploy N compute
nodes in a cluster -- and if each of these has M core, you may be able to
deploy N * M.  With care :)

We should cook up an example for a simple and easily-to-use parallel
