Indeed there are... I can think of at least two more: pconsole and dsh
(although neither looks as sophisticated as rgang).
pconsole actually takes the step of opening an xterm to all hosts you are
connecting to--which is nice if you need to run a specific command on one
host in the midst of distributing commands. another nifty feature is that
it binds directly to the pty devices, so you can attach existing sessions
on the fly.
dsh is along more 'traditional' lines of distributed commands, but it is
more advanced than a wrapper around 'ssh $node $cmd'. It also has an
'interactive mode', but doesn't open xterms.
