You mean "interoperable types" (intrinsic or derived)---this is what N1761 is 
meant to address? I am at a puzzle by how interoperability would work for 
non-interoperable types---again, an example, say, using MPI, of what is 
needed, would help. Examples, examples, please. It is hard to understand what 
you want, just as I am sure it is hard for you to understand what we want to 
do after just reading the proposal for the first time. We need to communicate 
more effectively please (unless you might be coerced into coming to Vegas 
next year???)

Anyway, I have yet to read your proposal, and will comment later...For now, it 
all seems to me like "I know how to do it better", which is fine by me, if 
you actually do it and it meets my needs.
