     I'm assume by "unique" you mean that the map is 1-to-1.  There's no 
such requirement on the column map of the matrix that you pass into the 
MueLu preconditioner constructor.  In fact, in most cases this won't be 
true.  I don't think we make any assumptions on the row map either, but 
usually we're working with an assembled matrix where the row map is 1-1.
