And I did not propose changing that. On the C side it is still void*.
The issue is what happens when a Fortran routine has such a dummy.
Let me write my proposed solution, this time without typos (I hope) but
I won't try to get the language perfect:
An assumed-type dummy argument that is of assumed-shape or assumed-rank
shall not correspond to an explicit-shape or assumed-size actual
argument that is itself an assumed-type dummy argument.
[I think allocatables and pointers are OK. Also note that a CLASS(*)
actual is allowed.]
Note for Rationale: This ensures that a caller can always pass type
information for an assumed-shape or assumed-rank to the callee, even
though there is no means to inquire it within Fortran.
