thanks for doing this.

That would flow a bit nicer if you say "...prevent concurrent execution of consecutive iterations using..." or something like that, I believe?

How about "Since 2008 the Fortran standard..." or "Fortran 2008 and later standards..." ?

Good catch!

The patch looks good if you consider my comments (which is not necessarily the same as following all of them ;-).
