kind of problem can happen as a result of that. :-(
The F90 bindings are better at that (F90 is a strictly-typed
language), but other problems in the MPI F90 bindings design prevent
it from being truly useful (IMHO).
FWIW, in the MPI-3 effort, we are working at making F03 bindings that
are MPI bindings "better" than the F90 bindings (the definition of
"better" is still under debate ;-) -- the issues are surprisingly [to
