FWIW the Charm++ folks are working on supporting Cell.   They had a poster on 
it at SC06 (which I missed, I don't know if exhibitors could get into that 
part).

http://sc06.supercomputing.org/schedule/event_detail.php?evid=5257

There's also a 28MB PDF (possibly this poster) that's been mentioned on the 
list before, but having found it once I can't find it again now I need the 
URL!

cheers,
Chris
