Those are not interoperable, so there is no way for C to call such a 
Fortran function, nor do we want that. The issue here is only whether 
Fortran can pass a CLASS(*) object to C via a descriptor. It seems 
Malcolm and Reinhold suggest yes, and I agree. I think Craig does too 
(or he should listen to me anyway :-).
