Don't John Varley's `Eight Worlds' symbionts - humans merged with alien space-dwelling slime molds - amount to a living solar sail? And Niven's star seeds (or did they just float haplessly from sun to sun?). And Donald Moffett's wonderful starfaring trees in THE GENESIS QUEST and SECOND GENESIS?

Very nice idea, it's true.
