In a conversation with MPI and tool developers and I once mentioned that 
not defining a standard/mandatory mpi.h was probably a missed 
opportunity for improving interoperability of MPI. I was then told by a 
member of the MPI-1 Forum that this was done on purpose. This makes me 
think that we will not see an ABI definition for MPI any time soon.
