Then, there is the question of what values to use for the

kind type parameter values,

Wouldn't using NEGATIVE kind values to select unsigned integers

be most in keeping with existing practice ;-)

In that case, it would have been convenient to use negative

KIND for the appropriate COMPLEX type from its corresponding

REAL type. An imaginary KIND would have been more interesting,

but KIND is supposed to be integer. In either case, one could

use ABS to find the base KIND.
