Makes sense to me, this way, with one open point...

So far, the array descriptor macro patches are implemented on
fortran-dev, so it would make sense to either

a) do your steps (i) to (iv) on fortran-dev, then move the whole thing
   to trunk, or

b) merge fortran-dev to trunk completely before step (ii).
