I probably should have added text (which I will do now) to make it
very clear that MPI_START is generalized to accept non-persistent
generalized requests. This was implicit in the fact it can be used,
but I will make it very clear. The binding does not change since
generalized requests are now of type MPI_Request so we can make this
change to start under the covers.
