Probably the new one since the old one does not use the features in the TR.

No.  If it is too complicated to understand without reading the MPI standard, it 
is too complicated as an example anyway.

Then why did we spend so much time doing things for MPI.  They have been a major 
driver of certain features of the TR, there is no point pretending otherwise.

I volunteer Craig to do GB51.  Hi Craig!
