>    world, but InfiniBand is supposed to make the latency drop. A lot.

sigh.  small-tree claims 6.13 us, which is certainly not exceptional
latency these days.  for instance, there are three vendors who are 
shipping <2 us MPI today.  maybe I'm just being extra-surly, but if
you crow too much about a non-novel accomplishment, you look pretty 
silly to anyone in the field...
