[mpiwg-sessions] will be on a plane today - and some observations

Passing a port on the cmd line for accept/connect was never implemented as I don’t think anyone really cared. Given how OMPI uses PMIx for that operation, it shouldn’t be all that difficult to do.

As noted in the referenced issue, there was a problem last year with cross-mpirun connections. Not sure when I’ll have time to look at it.

Canceling the meeting today is fine with me - I got pulled away and didn’t get the PMIx Groups implementation done (sigh).
