The development version of Emacs (to be released as 23.1 hopefully on
the order of six months) has supported F03 for the best part of a year.
I encourage people to try it out and report any problems or missing

.f95 was in Emacs 22.1 (added to CVS over six years ago), released over
a year ago. There is no reason to use anything other than 22.2 nowadays
(22.3 coming soonish).

I have not added .f03 because it is my understanding that the adoption
of .f95 as an extension was basically a mistake, and that we were never
intended to change the name of our files every few years. Can't remember
where I got this idea from, pointers to corrections saying that .f03 is
a recommended extension are welcome.
