I agree.  Indeed , it may be easier to write support
for general asynchronous routines than to try to specialize
for MPI.  Other communications and storage libraries
should not be prejudiced.

The shelf life of some MPI applications may be shorter
than we estimate from here.  Most MPI codes known to me
are under active development to incorporate new science,
and the advantages of coarrays for such modifications are great.
