Yes, but as long as it is < 140 characters, do we really care? I mean, we could still tweet about the function ;)

(sorry, couldn't resist)

How about we have the same name and have some arg ignored?

MPI_Comm_reenable_anysource(comm, failed_local_group, failed_remote_group)

With failed_remote_group only valid if comm is inter? Or does that violate some naming convention?
