Work in the area of networked shared memory is progressing quite rapidly:
It is not just a crazy thought.
The following is a short list of references to recent work that is relevant
to the subject. I'll be glad to receive notice of any other activity
in the area by people in this list.

Multilanguage Parallel Programming on Heterogeneous Systems'', 2nd
International Conference on Architectural Support for Programming
Languages and Operating Systems, IEEE, Palo Alto , October 1987, pp. 21-30.
