By the way (though it may be offtopic here)...

Does anybody know some statistics on MPI usage. e.i. :
- percentage of C, C++, Fortran MPI programs
- percentage of SPMD and MPMD programs
- MPI function an function groups usage (how many people use
topologies, asynchronous IO, communicator attributes etc.)
- average number of nodes for running and for debugging

I suppose this can be interesting for all MPI community as a valuable
feedback from those who use MPI for real applications. There was a
survey on SC'93 on the usage of debugging tools (
http://citeseer.ist.psu.edu/pancake94what.html ) and It might be
possible (if its not too late now) to do something alike.
