;-) I used to be one.

Ideally OMPI should do the switch between MXM/RC/XRC internally in the transport layer. Unfortunately,
we don't have such smart selection logic. Hopefully IB vendors will fix some day.

The P2P queue is fine, but most like using XRC your users will observe better performance. This is not just scalability.
