+1 for the proposal as well as for the suggestion regarding MPI 
compilers. I'm currently working on orsa to use the MPI via 
environment-modules, the way OpenMPI is currently packaged is just fine 
and it would be great if packages of other MPI implementations would 
follow it.

Thanks for writing this up,
