Subject: [Boost-mpi] No arg init

While working on the thread issue, a question arises regarding the no
arg initialization.

I understand that some MPI1.x might not allow it, but should BOOST.MPI
refect that choice ? Why can't we just pass dummy empty (argc,argv) to
MPI_Init(_thread) since, after all, no specific values are required ?

This would simplify our API, and I do not see any down side.

Any though ?
