The phrase "scientific village" used by Dr.
Michael Turner is a good metaphor for
describing the scale of the effort required
to tackle current scientific challenges.

It inspired me this thought: perhpas a
follow-up project to DARPA's High
Productivity Computing Systems
( could
be named the "Parallel Computing Scientific
Village". The goal of this project would be
to make the "science speed" match the
"bench speed". A large team of computer
scientists would design and implement the
programming abstractions that will enable
to efficiently use hundreds of thousands
of processors in one application.

A footnote to my previous comment:

Microsoft becomes an honorary citizen of
the Parallel Computing Scientific Village:
