[MPI3 Fortran] What if Fortran is the primary interface?

Possibly. The point at hand is MPICH2: int for all handles but MPI_File,
which is a pointer. All friends and relatives (MS MPI, Intel MPI, etc.)
typically follow suit.

I assume this means they have different type definitions for each  
different type of handle, correct?
