Hi stuebinm,

We were using distributed-process within our own project until it was 
too much effort to keep up with newer GHC releases and packages.

We were able to replace distributed-process and friends with our own 
much more lightweight curryer-rpc library[1] for the simple use-case of 
TCP client-server interaction.
