You might find generalized requests offer what you want if you don't
mind spawning threads. You don't get to hook an attribute onto an
MPI_Request object, but you do get a void * ponter which the
implementation then associates with your user-defined request. This
void * could be a datatype containing the orginali MPI_Request and
your user data.
