I thought I was 99% done (it all works in serial with compact meshes that are zero indexed... but everything is scrambled in parallel)... but I was counting on the XDA formats in libMesh working in a way that the perfect (as in an exact replica) mesh and EQSys showed up on the other side of a write a read... and it turns out not to be the case...

OK, so I've reminded myself of where this was left off - the parallel I/O for the equation systems is in place, while for the mesh it is not implemented yet. I'll review where things was left off, and I don't think it'll be that difficult to implement what you're looking for.


Let us know where we can help.  I was going to element IDs back to the connectivity arrays in XDA output and also add node IDs to that format for the first time too.  That might be counter-productive if you are going another direction.
