[Haskell-cafe] Serializing Functions and Actions for Distributed Programming

I'm very excited by the ability to pass functions or IO actions
between threads of the same program.  But I don't see any language or
library support for doing so between programs, or between sessions
with the same program.  OCaml provides a partial solution:


Though all it's really sending is an address and a hash of the binary
program.  Even SerTH doesn't help with functional types.  I seek the
knowledge of the Haskell Cafe: is there a reasonable way of addressing
this problem?
