you mean because it's just mentioned on the mpiexec page (version 0.77)?

- the LAM/MPI patch is a little bit out of date and for 6.5.8 (current 7.1.1 - 
is it still working?).

- MPICH2 has it's own mpiexec (which has just this name, and not the function 
of the PBS tight-integration program). A new name would be better chosen for 
this tight-mpiexec. And: you can compile MPICH2 startup in more than one way. 
I'm not sure, whether all are supported, as the supplied version is for a beta 
version of MPICH2 only.

But please keep the start_proc_args/stop_proc_args anyway, as we need special 
directories to be created on the slave nodes. Maybe it's personal taste, but I 
would still prefer setting up all the daemons for LAM/MPICH2 in 
start_proc_args, and the end-user can just use mpirun/mpich2-mpiexec, since all 
is already setup.
