I can't think of a canonical solution for that.  We might get some hints 
from environment variables but they vary between implementations.  We 
could check the name of our parent process but again there are many 
names that could be valid.  We know more after MPI_Init() but then it's 
too late.

Not sure why we'd supply custom builds with MPI enabled. Does MPI even 
work at all on Windows, with actual use of remote nodes? I'm not sure I 
have heard or read of that, ever.
