Subject: Re: to MPI or not MPI john?

I know a lot of parallelization people want to see an approach that
allows loose clusters to work on a given problem set, but I for one am
interested simply to use my SMP machines more efficiently.  I think it
would move us along much more quickly (and scratch my itch sooner...
;-) )  if focus was initially placed on solving the parallelization
problem, then on distribution to multiple nodes.  If I *really* want
to run a non cluster-aware program on multiple nodes of a cluster,
I'll wrap it in something like Mosix.

Just a thought.
