Subject: Re: [MTT devel] Tracking process stats

Gathering the info from any given might be a little difficult -- we'd
have to enlist orte somehow. The orteds could conceivably be able to
get this info because the MPI processes are their children, after
all. The orteds would then need to gather this info and make it
available somehow (e.g., mpirun could dump out a file, or perhaps
something to stdout, ...etc.).
