Has anyone tried building a cluster using handheld computers (i.e. iPaq or 
Palm type) that use wireless LAN (802.11) or IR for the interconnect?  Is 
there an implementation of MPI that will work in that environment (WinCE, 
PalmOS) (perhaps MPICH in some form?)

Yes, I know the performance will be hideous.
