For internal communication between workers, its just Marshal.load and
Marshal.dump with a uniq message header ( or footer ), that indicates
end of message. When worker or master reads a message thats complete,
it calls Marshal.load on it, and passes it around. I guess, that would
be even lighter than DRb, but may not be as much versatile. But with
this release of bdrb, I am more concerned about stability of stuff
than features.
