There is currently a semi-heated debate in comp.lang.fortran
concerning co-arrays and the upcoming Fortran 2008. Don't
waste your time trying to decipher the thread; however, there
appear to be a few knowledgable MPI Fortaners hang-out, lately.
Would Craig mind if I relay the above to c.l.f.? Of course,
if Craig prefers not to veer into USENET, I can understand
his decision.
