Bitcoin mining pools are like lending / borrowing cpu time, but it's only for hashing. Is there something more general; a market where you can lend and borrow cpu time, disk space and so on?

Maybe not exactly what you are asking for but CoinLab have a mining pool that intends to use the computing power of their members for jobs other than hashing.
