One of the decisions the MPI group needs to make is whether using an MPI 
module is required for the new interface.   If the answer is no, then 
the space of options is reduced quite a bit.  I don't get a vote, but if 
I did, I would favor a requirement that any program unit that uses MPI 
facilities has access to the MPI module.
