I can certainly post this script (see attached). The script loads a 
bunch of C++ extension modules, creates some distributed objects, and 
then invokes some functions on them.

The library I'm wrapping is Sourcery VSIPL++ 
(http://www.codesourcery.com/vsiplplusplus). It uses MPI underneath to 
define distributed data structures and algorithms.

I expected that running that script in an autopx environment would be 
conceptually similar to running an equivalent SV++ application via 
mpirun. Is that wrong ?

(Note that at this point this is just a test, as I'm not gathering the 
data at the end of the script, or do anything else with them. I'm merely 
trying to see whether my SV++ Python bindings work as intended.)

(If I paste the content of that script into the px-enabled IPython 
interpreter, everything appears to be running fine.)

Thanks for your help !
