Sure. I don't think any of this is particularly secret, aside from
wanting to avoid making promises we end up not keeping. Here's how I'd
like to play things:
- in a month or so, mpich2-1.0.5 will be released, marking the
beginning of another 6 month dev cycle.
- Very early in that cycle, I'll commit Avery's dtype I/O. Strided
will use listio by default just because that's a pretty well tested
code path in the PVFS system interface. Hints will get you
datatype I/O (and probably uncover some bugs).
