I just installed openmpi 1.6.1 win32.exe. I don't see any plugin in
there. There are several libmpi*.dll or libo*.dll, but no mca_btl_* or so

I don't see anything related to specialized networks (no openib or so),
so I guess there's no real need for plugins in OMPI/Windows.

As long as we don't have libxml or libpci on Windows, hwloc plugins are
useless on Windows. But that might change with other plugins.
