work well if each fitness evaluation was long-lived; less well if there
were just lots of them.
Mahout might be the better option but I've never tried using it myself.
Another thing to consider, though it's not supported out-of-the box, is to
use the support for island models and have each "island" running on a
different machine. There would be less communications overhead between
