I have been writing some code that would have benefited greatly from the
fix to #2219 (MPI datatypes for C99 types and MPI integer typedefs).
Issue #2222 (MPI_Reduce_scatter_block) is not in the query you gave above
but is also an MPI 2.2 feature; having that fixed would also simplify my
code (and reduce memory requirements at scale).
