If we're talking about different interconnects to run specific jobs, then
its quite easy to build a cluster with (say) a few racks of Myrinet equipped
nodes. You just set up your job scheduler such that scientists needing to
use Myrinet can request them.

Or by "conditions" do you mean diferent libraries or compilers?
