I've read the Transactional Messages proposal and I am a ittle confused 
here.  Is there a reason why we believe that message faults themselves 
should be handled by the application layer instead of the MPI library?  
Using the latter model allows one to reduce the error conditions 
perculated up to the user to revolve around loss of the actual 
connection to a process (or the actual process itself).
