Hmmm, I guess I could see the thinking of tying ofud and openib btls
configuring together. However it seems inconsistent to me that one btl
doesn't allow you to control configuring it in or not directly. What if
I really do not want to build ofud but do want to build openib?

That being said it seems this happened some time ago so I guess I'll
grin and bare it.

Ok, well I just asked because in the list above *you* mention 4 verbs
components in one of the items and I was just curious what that might me.
