I think a common, more general implementation is possible, but certainly
requires more work than a plain parallel pg_dump solution.

Well, I fear that's heavily dependent on the clustering solution. So I
think the first step will be to have a general purpose snapshot exporting /
cloning feature for a single node (i.e. usable for parallel querying).
Extending that to allow for distributed parallel querying is the next step.
