Then it sounds like we have bigger problems, like the MPIR proctable is inadequate to represent this configuration.

I did read Snir's proposal, but I can't say that I'm less confused about what it implies relative to an MPI process's rank in MPI_COMM_WORLD. Are you saying that a single OS process may have contain multiple MPI processes where each MPI process has a unique rank in MPI_COMM_WORLD? And therefore, if we try to use the environment to identify an OS process's rank in MPI_COMM_WORLD, it would have to be more like a list of ranks rather than a single value?
