  I am confused -- you talk about passing uncaught exceptions back to
processes waiting for messages, and then you talk about preventing
deadlock situations in a seemingly different scenario. Perhaps you
would like to show some code examples? I don't know who is this
"process-management model" and why I care about it, but I would like
to see some examples of actual working code that cannot be reproduced
with the MPI library.
