Folks:
I propose that we drop the mca parameter "btl_base_debug". It is an added
level of complexity that does not provide any benefit. In fact, the
debug/verbose
code in the btl_base_open.c is such that we can never turn on verbose
messages.

A quick research of the other base components in the OMPI area show that
none
of them have a *_base_debug mca parameter. They only have a *_base_verbose
parameter.

I will plan on making this change but just thought I would check and see if
there is some historical or other reason why btl_base_debug should *not*
be removed.
(This came up as I was trying to figure out how to turn on verbosity for
the MX problem reported on the users list. )
