Thus IIUC, the app calls your lib and your lib on its turn calls a
plugin? This involves two dereferences. My idea was to (be able to)
recompile the MorphMPI for each of the MPI lib's and plug this one
between the app and the MPI. AFACIT this approach has the same set of
features but is more lightweight.

Is your project open-source? If so, can I check it out?
