When we started adding Checkpoint/Restart functionality to Open MPI,
we were hoping to provide a LAM/MPI-like interface to the C/R
functionality. So we added a configure option as a placeholder. The
'LAM' option was intended to help those transitioning from LAM/MPI to
Open MPI. However we never got around to providing the wrapper
functionality for this, so the 'LAM' option in Open MPI defaults to
the Open MPI 'cr' option.
