As I understand it you are especially interested in "distributed scraping"
- is that right?

This definitely a nice (and classic) problem - I know Friedrich did
something with "flockscrape" (
https://pypi.python.org/pypi/flockscrape-client) a while back and
BrowserFarm (which never real got beyond the ideas stage) was about
distributed processing and scraping using the browser as the platform.
