On windows I recommend based upon user requirements - and my
familiarity in that situation.

With this old version of mpich - if it simply works when other
alternatives have issues - then I'll recommend users to use it.

Yes - we should fix petsc configure to work better with MSMPI

- rework all MPI tests to always use mpi.h
- rework package.py to use 'Inc' as opposed to 'include' for include dir.

[even then - if one is using old MS compilers on windows - the old
mpich binary might be easier to use]
