Note that this is a new parameter for OMPI v1.3 -- it has to do with
how non-MPI communications are sent around (e.g., OMPI startup
coordination). More documentation will be coming along on the new
ORTE-level controls for v1.3.

This is also a new parameter for v1.3 -- see the "sneak peak" v1.3
screencast in the videos section (in the OpenFabrics subsection) on
the OMPI web site for a description of what it is/does.

These params exist in v1.2.
