- re-design OTF's error/success return values for handlers and functions

- ideas for future development
	- add memory allocation/deallocation record types, how?
	- have more semantics
	- have less semantics
	- add general purpose record types like (type/owner,key,value) with no semantics,
		-- can be used freely, ignored if unknown, 
		-- key/value are either uint64_t, array of uint64_t or text

- add record to write wall clock time or epoch or year:month:day:hour:minute:second
	with this, VT can record time at start and end of trace (request by Robert Henschel)

- create a (graphical) tool for changing definition records:
  - grouping functions
  - ...

- solve the problem that when only reading statistic records one cannot
  determine the begin and end of a process !!!!!
  You might introduce a new record for this. ( maybe like begin/endprocess
  for events? )
  You could also write a statistics comment record when the first event appears,
  (in otfaux)

- add new statistics record type that gives the caller-callee relation 
	- only write this at the end of a trace run

- use asynchronous write (aio_write) and maybe even read for performance
