I didn't study this enough but in what way would a more sophisticated test plan impact the
distributed execution? Normally, the test shouldn't even know it's running differently.

Anyhow, like I've mentioned my no.1 problem with RMI is that it needs open ports on both sides.
There's also no security basically.

And finally, the connection is brittle.

A protocol that would have a single open port on the remote machine, use an encrypted channel
and have some queuing to handle temporary connection errors would be peachy.
