Very true, we use modules and can swap easily, and rebuild

(shameless plug) if you want, listen to our podcast on OpenMPI
http://www.rce-cast.com/index.php/Podcast/rce01-openmpi.html

The MPICH2 show is recorded (edited it last night, almost done!), and  
will be released this Saturday Midnight Eastern.
If you want to hear the rough cut, to compare to OpenMPI, email me and  
I will send you the unfinished mp3.
