There was a paper from a while back where a group implemented TIPC for OMPI 1.0.2 and showed some decent improvement. It was pretty well done in terms of what they measured but the over-all gains were of the order of 3-4% improvement for "real world" applications.
You might see what they did to port TIPC over.
