It shouldn't be too much work; Pachi uses explicit direct network
communication between slaves and master, please refer to the top of
the file distributed/distributed.c for documentation and some examples.
Note that there is one trick - network.c:is_private() function must
return true when master accepts a slave's connection (this is to give
at least minimum security). You may want to change this function to
always return true and instead use some firewall rules to prevent rogue
connections to the master.
