Jim Xia says about F03/0090:
>before rushing to the proposed edit.

This is the first time I can recall hearing the Fortran Interp process
characterized as "rushing". 8)

In any case I had intended to vote Yes on F03/0090.
The fact that one can figure out what a "polymorphic array constructor"
might signify is not in itself a valid argument that the 
functionality should be added retroactively to Fortran 2003!  

Especially so since the need for caution in checking this new
functionality against the rest of the standard would delay the interp.

Timely interps are desperately needed as the Fortran 2003 has already
been published.
