[Mpi3-ft] Ticket #277 - Add MPI_Timer Requests

As we discussed on the call last week, there are quite a few tickets on the FTWG list, many of which have been largely untouched for at least a year, and many times, much longer. I'm going to try to start a thread for each of the tickets to get a conversation going about whether or not we should keep these tickets around or clean them up and mark them as retracted. I'll try to give a brief summary of the ticket, though I encourage everyone to take a look at the ticket to have a chance to read any notes made there.

To establish some ground rules, I don't propose removing any tickets just because the person who started them doesn't read their email today. I think we should let these things stick around for a while longer to give people a chance to catch up. I think if we don't hear anything defending a ticket by the next forum meeting (beginning of June), we can consider the ticket as dormant and can withdraw them. I'm certainly open to suggestion otherwise.

This ticket discusses a middle ground between MPI_TEST and MPI_WAIT where requests can have a timeout value attached to them which would limit the amount of time spent in an MPI_WAIT operation. Request timers could also be reset using MPI_TIMER_RESET and cancelled using MPI_CANCEL.

This ticket hasn't been touched since early 2012.
