Actually I think that the approach we can offer is complementary. While
Gecode search engines are able to use several cores/processors available to
the operating system Mozart ould extend this boundary to use a network of
computers. The idea of the integration of gecode into mozart has several
steps and milestones and this is not actually the first but a desirable one.

Just remember that the granularity that we can achieve (due to the current
design decisions in gecode) is to de point of parallelism oin the search
and *not* in the constraint propagation.

Gustavo
