    Hello,

    Did anybody tried python pickle module over heterogeneous 32/64 bits
    mpi exchanges to overcome the translation problem ? i.e. pickling on
    one side (let's say a 32-bits OS side), sending the buffer as string
    through mpi and unpickling on the other side (let's say a 64-bits OS
    side)


    Any well known pitfall or advice before I try this way would be welcome
    !
    Thanks a lot in advance !
    Regards,
    Thierry

    Why would this be relevant at all? All the machines in an MPI group
    have to be heterogenous.

    While I'm at it: using pickles in pyMPI was a really dumb idea.
