All --

Here's a topic for debate on the call today: I just committed a few fixes
for ORTE's fork pls on the v1.1 branch. These fixes are no longer relevant
to the trunk because the fork pls no longer exists (it was replaced by the
odls). Hence, they will eventually not be relevant for the v1.2 branch.
But I think they are definitely relevant *now* on the v1.2 branch. So the
question is: do we apply them on the branch?

Pro: it'll make testing the v1.2 branch easier
Con: it'll make at least one or two minor conflicts when the MAD stuff is
brought over to the v1.2 branch

The relevant r numbers are r11140 and r11141 and a trivial one-line patch to
remove a duplicate free() in the fork pls terminate_job() function. At
least some of these fixes may be relevant even after the MAD stuff is gone,
but some will not.

Ralph -- please correct if I misrepresented any of this.

Discuss! :-)
