Well, if mpi.so does not have a dependency on libboost_mpi, this is a separate
matter from it not having a soname. I still think that not having a soname
is fine, while not having a dependency on libboost_mpi sounds like a bug.

Looking at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/Python I see paths
Does it seem like it's gonna work? BTW, 'mpi.so' sounds too generic,
using 'boost_mpi.so' would be better IMO.
