MPI was leveraging on the implementation of the archive classes included
with the package. Looks like good practice to me. But then this problem

I didn't hear about this until today - that's (5 days after I merged into
and maybe 10 days since I loaded into the trunk. I notice that I can't see
MPI tests on the test matrix which might be a problem. Perhaps if
these were visible, I red (literally) flag would have gone up when
I did the merge.
