We were thinking 2 total documents:

1. MPIR (as it stands now).

2. A new document that contains the DLL stuff, message queue spec, and MPI handle debug spec.  The reason is that the message queue + MPI handle debug stuff are both standalone plugins that will be loaded by the debugger.  This is a bit different than MPIR.  And the DLL-location stuff fits in well with these two.  Hence, the organization of the document can be something like:

   a. intro
   b. DLL locating
   c. message queue
   d. MPI handle debugging

And the DLL-locating stuff can apply to the later two chapters.
