Our shop often works on very very big files. Heavy composites at high resolutions, and so we find that save times and opening times take quite a long time–understandably so–files sometimes exceed 9 GB. Would it be possible to access the power of multiple computers over a LAN to help in performing these time consuming tasks? If so, I would like to see this integrated into Photoshop.

Not easily, since the time to transmit the file over the network is greater than the local disk and memory access time.

If you had many files to batch process, then a server farm arrangement might help.
