Please stop perpetuating the myth that MPI and PGAS are opposed by asking
questions that support this false dichotomy.

Lots of folks use MPI via other APIs, whether they be PETSc or Global
Arrays.  Thanks to MPI-3 RMA, PGAS can be just another abstraction layer on
top of MPI.

*Do you have any plan (to investigate) to switch from using MPI to using
any other parallel language/library? **
*A PGAS language (UPC, Coarray Fortran, OpenSHMEM, XcalableMP, ...)*

GCC/OpenCoarrays and Intel MPI both use MPI-3 RMA as a/the communication
layer.  OSHMPI is very close to a 1:1 mapping between OpenSHMEM and MPI-3
RMA.  UPC could be ported to MPI-3 RMA with dynamic windows if someone
