    Thanks for the feedback, Marc.
    I notice that UDP is the default network for your install.  We've
    improved our documentation for how to run UDP-based programs in this
    beta, and UPC executables now provide a helpful message if you try to
    run them over UDP without the right setup (i.e., without telling the
    runtime which hosts to run the job on).  
    I remember you were thinking of using UPC for a course you'll be
    teaching.  We'd love to hear how that goes.  Please have have your
    students send us bug reports for any issues they encounter (extra credit
    for each bug reported?)
