Ummm...though this is a separate discussion, please note that we never
said we would replace the OS scheduler. All we said was that OMPI
didn't currently detect and/or obey any OS scheduler binding
directives when binding processes.

This has now been corrected in the devel trunk, though it remains to
be fully tested.

The issue of what to do in the absence of any OS scheduler binding
directives is a topic for a separate discussion - which I believe we
already have partially had. :-)
