 Providing `libmpiseq` in MUMPS directly conflicts with other packages
 (namely, PETSc). Also, the MUMPS developers can't even namespace their own
 package correctly so it'd be a colossal maintenance nightmare to provide
 both. I wish the kwant developers would interface with a better linear
 algebra package (unsurprisingly, I recommend PETsc). Unless the condition
 number of these matrices are so bad that they need a direct solver (no
 idea off the top of my head). If dense matrices are preferred then there's

 I did try to patch kwant's setup.py but it took more time that I currently
 have to see if they could be cajoled into using parallel MUMPS (their
 reason of singled core-ness is dubious to me). Anything, literally
 anything, would be better than writing an interface to MUMPS.

 I'm going to close this as `wontfix` because I simply don't have the time
 to maintain another MUMPS package. If someone wants to step up, I could
 provide the work I currently have to make a subport of MUMPS that is
 sequential only.
