What was said today is that we would like to have a first release of new MPI functionality 3 years after the start of the current forum, which will be around SC'10.  This keeps with the current trend of an annual update.  To meet this goal, first reading needs to be next spring.  What does not make it into that release will need to be a year later, as we want to get nonblocking collrctives out the door.

that's how I understood it. Technically probably 3 years from Friday
(after the final vote on 2.2).
