There is currently no way to iterate over multiple
mpi_details sections, but there might be an acceptable
workaround. You can create a simple wrapper script to
iterate over variations of your MPI details section using
command line INI file overrides (see E.g.,
say you have the following MPI details section:

  [MPI details: Open MPI]
  foo = some default value
  bar = some default value
  exec = mpirun @foo@ @bar@ ...
Using command-line INI overrides, you can iterate over a
series of values for "foo" and/or "bar":

  $ client/mtt --scratch /some/dir ...
  $ client/mtt --scratch /some/dir --test-run foo=abc ...
  $ client/mtt --scratch /some/dir --test-run foo=def ...
  $ client/mtt --scratch /some/dir --test-run bar=uvw ...
  $ client/mtt --scratch /some/dir --test-run bar=xyz ...

Note in the above example, we use the same scratch directory
for all the runs, and we run only the test run phase (via
the --test-run option) since we do not need to reinstall or
rebuild anything as we iterate over different command lines.

Could the above be of use for what you're trying to do?
