As the quoted text above says, I was talking about UPC 
interoperability.  Since UPC is a superset of C, I don't see that 
requiring us to stop being interoperable with C.  The original point was 
that a discussion of global C pointers rightly belongs in the context of 
UPC interop and not C interop.

Cheers,
Bill
