Ew. But yes. :-)

That being said, it would probably be relatively simple to allow the
mpi_details field to take a comma-delimited list of section names
(sorry, I thought I conveyed that in the last mail but I think I
accidentally left it out). Would that be useful to you?

Yes. This was the eventual intent (supporting multiple MPI's with
the same test suites -- just providing the "mpirun"-like semantics
for each MPI).
