I understand that OpenMPI is supposed to [at least, for some people's
perception! ;-)] become the "one true MPI" implementation that eclipses
all others due to its very cool new modular design and other features.
But, even so, I think it would be a good idea to have and maintain other
MPI versions (such as MPICH v1 & v2, LAM, etc.) in Extras so that people
have some flexibility. And to do that, we'll very likely need to setup
the multiple MPI packages using alternatives.
While we are thinking about this, it would be good to be able to support
multiple versions of a particular MPI compiled with different compilers.
Locally I maintain LAM compiled with PGF90 and IFORT and it would be
nice to be able to have all three installed simultaneously.
