I'd also like to support this effort since it's a real issue with
respect to the MPI implementations in Debian. It's not possible to
install and use multiple MPI implementations in Debian because this bug
(and related ones) makes it impossible to switch alternatives. Even
worse, all packages which want to build against multiple MPI versions
fail to build or break it. See the gromacs source package as an example.
So it would be really great if you could give this bug a much higher

I spent some time on trying to fix it myself but failed because I lacked
of time to dive into u-a. I'd like to do some documentation or even
several changes to make the u-a code more readable, if this work is
