Glad to hear it; this is one of the reasons Open MPI exists.

When we all first started talking about collaborating (just about 2
years ago), we initially thought we'd just write some common components
for each of our MPI implementations (LAM/MPI, LA-MPI, FT-MPI). But we
eventually came to the realization that each of our projects had good
*and* bad points, and it was strategically a much better move -- both
for us and for the greater HPC community -- to just completely start
over with a blank slate and as few preconceptions as possible. Hence,
Open MPI was born.

The point here is that if/when you find things that Open MPI
does/doesn't do that is a point point for you, please be sure to let us

Yes. Unfortunately, we've still got some work to do there, too. :-\
