Distributed "map"

It's time to fix this problem: run a piece of code on a collection of
hosts, gather the results in a set or dictionary.

What do I have to do to make this feasible?  Do all my system
scripting in Erlang?

The general idea here is to maybe start replacing shell scripting
everywhere and use real programming languages..

I'm liking erlang a lot, though it's not built for batch processing.
