Yes, you are talking about the MSG_task_dsend function. It was 
introduced in the 3.6 series version of SimGrid. Its complete 
documentation is available here:


Keep in mind that the third parameter is only called if the 
communication fails. If it does work, it is responsibility of the 
receiver code to free anything related to the task.

Ok, we will be waiting for that. Bug reports are always welcomed. ;-)
