Hi Martin, Hi Kathryn, all,

Does 'finally put it to rest' mean, no more discussion is needed, and
Fortran binding will be made, or does it mean we will not have any
Fortran bindings?

From what Kathryn said it sounded quite like the first. Can't Fortran 03
directly call into C libraries?

I'll be on holiday during that time 6/11 - 6/24.

Great! I just hope the volcano cloud doesn't interfere with my travel
plans :( (time is against me on this one, I'm afraid *sigh*)
