Nope. Well, that's not true, there is a paper <http:// 
dmap.nrlssc.navy.mil/dmap/pubs/documents/benchmarking.pdf> on a topic  
somewhat like that, but in general PostGIS/PostgreSQL is not set up  
for grid computing.  The paper covers the use of MOSIX, which is a  
parallel/gridding system that hides the grid behind an OS abstraction.
