   You may be able to mimic what you want by not using PETSC_DECIDE but instead computing up front how many rows of each matrix you want stored on each MPI process. You can use 0 for on certain MPI processes for certain matrices if you don't want any rows of that particular matrix stored on that particular MPI process.
