Ok agreed. Unless there is a way to solve this nicely lets go with cache 
based DT. I'll think more about this over the weekend.

Also, why would you call DT#map for each key specified? I am thinking it 
should be called once when task is migrated to execution node, context 
should be filled with entries on that cache node and passed to map. So 
call map once per node with all keys already in context.

I'd also try to use our own interfaces here rather than pure Map so we 
can evolve them if we need to - DistributedTaskContext or whatever.....
