[mpiwg-tools] Continuos counter / timer

   If a pvar is a continuos counter (though I think this case is strange),
 once a handle for it is allocated, what is its value if we read it
immediately?  Should it be 1) zero or 2) the current value (state) of this
   I guess for continuos pvars, all sessions should read the same value if
read at the same time.  So I think 2) is more reasonable.  But the Standard
says "the starting value for variables of this class is 0".

   Any comments?  Thanks.
