Hummm . . . I see that Boost 1.42 MPI appearsto be part of the Maverick PowerPC and Sparc configurations,
cf. https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/maverick/powerpc/libboost-mpi-dev/22.214.171.124 https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/maverick/sparc/libboost-mpi-python-dev/126.96.36.199 or am I misunderstanding the significance of these webpages?
Also https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/maverick/amd64?text=mpi indicates that MPI is still in the game. Is the implication that they are all going to be removed?
