It looks like we dropped this thread.

I think it requires adding block size arguments to the VecStride
functions, or (better, IMO), stripping PCFIELDSPLIT of VecStride
(replacing it with some use of VecScatter).  Does it make sense to add a
VecScatter interface that is optimized for doing several scatters at
once (like VecStride), or is the reference implementation enough for

If we change the VecStride interface, then it'll have to wait for the
3.5 release.
