The examples are wrong and need updating. :-)

After listening to the comments of a few vendors, I took author's
priviledge and deleted them. If you want to send architectural
information around, then comment on the MPI_ARCH_ENCODE function
being discussed in the I/O group (but headed for external section 7.7.4).

Again, Thanks for your careful reading.
