Just do it.  Do it now.

I think we should deprecate without intent to delete but rather to
prevent F77-like semantics from hamstringing us forever, i.e. not
create new features with F77 bindings ala C++ in MPI-2.2+.

Yes.  No, it's not :-)

Sure but my calander is very colorful already.  We might need Doodle.
