Parameter Sweeping on Amazon EC2?

Hi folks.  I'm looking into "supercomputer" stunts that I can use with  
netlogo on clusters or multiprocessor systems while doing parameter  
scans of a model (i.e. behavior space).

One avenue I'm interested in is "cloud computing" such as Amazon's EC2  
web services.

Has anyone tried netlogo (headless, I presume) on such a system?  No  
need for fine grain threads etc .. simply launch 10's of processors  
running the model with a given set of parameters much like behavior  
space does for one machine.
