If I may, I'd like to suggest mpi-defaults go ahead despite
good intentions that OpenMPI be ready before squeeze.  

That way, maintainers of MPI-using packages (e.g. me) don't have to
deal with the mess from today until the day OpenMPI becomes the
defacto default.  If that day arrives before squeeze: no problem,
mpi-defaults can just disappear.  

In the meanwhile, it serves a need.  To answer Manuel Prinz's
question: *my* goal is only to build mpi-using packages with some
default MPI, not with all flavours of MPI.
