Output in C++ with MPI.

P: n/a
It is well known that in MPI it usually suffices if only one process
performs output. The output is most often directed to the console, i.e.
to cout. However, it is tedious to write code to check the rank of the
process in order to decide whether this is the process that has been
designated to perform output:

if( MPI_Comm_rank( comm ) == 0 )
std::cout << something;

Has anyone devised a better alternative besides this one:

template< typename t >
void MPIPrint( t const& smth_to_print )
if( MPI_Comm_rank( comm ) == 0 )
std::cout << smth_to_print;

MPIPrint( something );

In fact, I'm interested if there is some way to introduce a new
manipulator to be used in cases such as:

cout << set_MPI_comm( comm ) << something; // Checks rank to decide
whether to print.

What about redirecting stdout to /dev/null on all processes
other than rank 0?
