Looks interesting.  One point: you seem to be using Read and Show 
typeclasses for serialisation.  I think you would be better off using 
Binary, which is much more efficient.

> The DSTM package consists of the DSTM library, a name server application, and three sample distributed programs using the library. Provided are a simple Dining Philosophers, a Chat, and a soft real-time Bomberman game application. Distributed communication is transparent to the application programmer. The application designer uses a very simple name server mechanism to set up the system. The DSTM library includes the management of unavailable process nodes and provides the application with abstract error information thus facilitating the implementation of robust distributed application programs.
