One can force `plm_rsh_agent` to be e.g: `bash` with `mpirun --mca plm_rsh_agent bash` but it's not the default behavior yet, perhaps in `openmpi:5.0`.

Sure looks like it's optional to me. Is it needed to run john, freecad, paraview, etc?

FWIW, both Debian/Fedora appear to depend on an ssh-client.
