Yeah, but it seems geared towards HPC scenarios and I wonder how 
their model will hold up when "home computers" move towards many 
cores with local memory.

I've got a feeling that some model reminiscent of actor based 
languages will take over at some point. E.g. something closer to 
Go and Pony, but with local memory baked in as a design premise.

Still, it is interesting that we now see pragmatic languages that 
are designed with parallell computing as a premise. So we now 
have at least 3 young ones that try to claim parts of this space: 
Chapel, Go and Pony. And they are all quite different! Which I 
can't really say about the non-concurrent languages; C++, D and 
Rust are semantically much closer than Chapel, Go and Pony are.
