Agreed, I'm all for reducing how much is done in PetscInitialize.  It
could be as bare-bones as taking command line arguments, malloc, and the
profiling clock.  But I think it would be difficult to remove it
entirely without cluttering user code with additional calls.  Ideally it
could be simplified to a short sequence of function calls that the
advanced user could call themselves.
