OMPIO is the 'native' implementation of MPI I/O in Open MPI, its however
only available from the 1.7 series onwards.

I am still looking into the PVFS2 with ROMIO problem with the 1.6
series, where (as I mentioned yesterday) the problem I am having right
now is that the data is wrong. Not sure what causes it, but since I have
teach this afternoon again, it might be friday until I can digg into that.
