(j3.2006) MOVE_ALLOC with coarrays: Add STAT= for STAT_STOPPED_IMAGE?

Hi all,

this email is motivated by a question in comp.lang.fortran by someone 
who observed that ALLOCATE/DEALLOCATE statements have a STAT=/ERRMSG= 
while MOVE_ALLOC doesn't.

For noncoarrays, I think MOVE_ALLOC can be treated as any user procedure 
with intent(out) allocatable arguments, for which also no error 
diagnostic exists and where deallocation is unlikely to fail.

However, for coarrays MOVE_ALLOC is also an image control statement ? 
and collective deallocation is much more likely to fail (e.g. with 
STAT_STOPPED_IMAGE). Thus, one might consider adding "dealloc-opt"-like 
optional dummy arguments for error recovery.
