But what if your execution model is to start all of your processes at once, and
you are in fact not even allowed to spawn new ones? (I'm thinking of some of
the MPPs.) It's not clear that all architectures will be able to support the
dynamic process chapter. At the moment, these machines are capable of
supporting the semantics of MPI_Init() as it currently stands. This would break
that, I think.
Would some of the MPP vendors care to comment?
