Tony, if you knew this community better, you would be aware that "free beer"
is different from "free software", and that calling any software "totally
free" is a really bad idea.

If your product is now free in the liberty sense, that would be news, but I
think you're probably just confusing the two.

My comments were about modifying mpich, not about waiting or hoping. I said
nothing about either. If you wish to reply to my comments in the future, I
would suggest replying to what I said, not what you read into it.
