I found a solution I can live with: It's now so adamantly ifdef'ed that if you do not enable it, you'll get a binary with the same sha1sum as a pristine jumbo build. This way any bugs (of mine) are guaranteed to only exist in an MPI-enabled build. And after some clean-up, it's not that horrific, Now I think it may be valid to include it in Jumbo. I'll release it soon, I hope. I outsourced some beta testing to W.A :) magnum
