according to https://slurm.schedmd.com/mpi_guide.html I have built
Slurm 19.05 with PMIx support enabled and it seems to work for both,
OpenMPI and Intel MPI. (I've also set MpiDefault=pmix in slurm.conf.)
But I still don't get the point. Why should I favour `srun ./my_mpi_program´
over `mpirun ./my_mpi_program´? For me, both seem to do exactly the same
thing. No? Did I miss something?
