You definitely have all of these tools available. If you do decide to go 
the PLT route, keep me in the loop. Along with making sure that the 
XML-RPC library meets your needs, I can also share my hacked SchemeQL 
library, which I back-ended into spgsql. This way, you get the SchemeQL 
high-level interface, but have a pure-Scheme backend that can talk to 
the Postgres DB. If that's your concern, anyway.

If there is an appropriate way to share that hack more generally, I can, 
but it involved some destructive changes at the back of SchemeQL. I 
don't want to cause confusion in the library space by doing so, though.

As for your parallelism, you do have plenty of tools there as stated 
before; personally, I'm fond of the ConcurrentML channel library.
