Yes. PGAPACK, developend in the mid-1990s by David Levine while at Argonne,
works perfectly well in parallel under various MPI implementations.
I have been in contact with David and Argonne to coordinate a re-release
under a newer license , but we're not quite there yet, and I have
been the one holding this up. Hopefully more news 'soon' but I've been
mumbling that all summer while I kept busy...
You may want to look at PGAPACK and study it for possible extensions and
refactorings, rather than to start again from scratch.
