Some colleagues of mine (Richard Hudson, Ron Morrison, and David Munro) and I
have devised a scheme called DMOS (Distributed Mature Object Space), reported
briefly at OOPSLA '97, and with a longer journal article in the works, that may
at least somewhat fill the bill. It does not deal directly with replicas, but
I think it could be adapted to do so, especially if replicas were treated as
distinct objects for purposes of gc. You can find the various versions online
at the University of St. Andrews:
