Valentin's experiment is visible in Octobus' development repository:

Valentin initial goal was to produce a proof of concept. Now that this 
experiment is a clear success (as you noticed), we (Octobus) are looking 
into turning it into more production ready code upstream. Raphaël Gomès 
started working on that (with Georges' help). He should start sending 
patches about it in the coming weeks.
