Personally I rely solely on non-blocking select(2)/read(2) and their
return value. If transport program unexpectedly exits (remote hosts
shuts down or reboot), wip/paexec (tool for distributing tasks over
network/CPUs) behaves normally. I haven't seen any problem for years
with ssh.  If transport program hangs up, you need to kill it manually.
