There's no "official" project like that.  People try this stuff out,
sometimes develop a working patch, then abandon it (usually within a
month).  To be honest, I expect that your effort will be similar in
that respect. ;-)

I agree with Nick's advice - you should search the archives of this
mailing list.  Here are a couple of good search queries:

	http://search.gmane.org/?query=mpi&group=gmane.comp.security.openwall.john.user
	http://search.gmane.org/?query=parallel&group=gmane.comp.security.openwall.john.user

Also, there are 5 different JtR/MPI hacks in this FTP directory:

	ftp://ftp.openwall.com/pub/projects/john/contrib/mpi/

I suggest that you start with the README.
