Introducing lfarm

lfarm is a distributed version of lparallel which replaces worker threads with remote processes. For example lfarm:pmap will subdivide the input sequence(s), send the parts to remote machines for mapping, and then combine the results. Likewise lfarm:future wraps remote task execution in the metaphor of promises. Most of the lparallel kernel API is retained with minor variations.
