I would like to write a module (i think that's the right terminology)
for OpenMPI to a new network interface.

The network interface (actually a simulator) can do the following
simple things:
-return the size of the network
-return the id of the node inside the network
-send non-blocking to a node
-probe for messages
-recv blocking

So it's a pretty simple interface, the connection to the simulator works
over normal TCP/IP sockets.

So how should I start doing this?
Or is there something existing i could modify?
