I support this. There is no change in functionality from what
has been voted on in the final meeting - it just cleans up
The only question I had when reading over your note was whether
there would be conflicts with things in MPI-1. I believe there
are none. Am I correct that the situation is:
1. We are already proposing functions with new names that
reproduce MPI-1 functionality for communicators and extend
it for other types. (The old functions remain, but are effectively
deprecated, as with the datatype constructors with MPI_Aint arguments).
2. The names of your new proposed typedefs have been carefully
chosen to also not conflict with the MPI-1 names.
