No doubt many don't. I'm just trying to gain a better understanding of
boost.mpi and provide some of that feedback you asked for else thread. :-)

Does MPI detect those changes automatically resending the skeleton
information as required? Or does the user code need to explicitly manage
such situations? Or does this disallow usage of the skeleton approach
altogether in these situations.

Thanks, Jeff
