To set the record straight on Butterflies:

The Butterfly processor from BBN has nothing to do with gateways. It
is a general purpose parallel processor, configurable with boards
to have 16 to 256 processors. It is hosted by a Sun or Vaxen via either
an Ethernet or an RS232 TIP connection. Present versions have only MC68000
chips; the MC68020 version is coming shortly. The Butterfly is programmed
in C; the operating system is known as Chrysalis.
