hi,

i would like to test ipython1 together with mpi and one thing is a bit
confusing for me. the faq says:

"In fact, IPython Engines can be started as MPI processes (they can
call MPI_Init) and you can then use MPI however you want."

does that mean that it is my option to call mpi_init by hand or does
it somehow happen behind the scenes? i understand that i have to use
mpirun to launch the engines.

i would like to use mpi from within an extension wrapped using swig
but i suppose that this is not a problem.

regards,
ondrej
