I'm afraid I don't have anything to say about all that stuff ... about IBM's

they regard the whole thing as an impressive result to have achieved so far,
with just a few rough edges remaining, in which case hopefully they will sort
this out soon. Have IBM given you any further reply yet? (At the time of your
last message, they'd said stuff like "I've found a comment..." which is
obviously not from a sufficiently high level of staff :-)

I'd be happy with whatever minimises the impact of these work-arounds on our
code base. (Not just for OS400 but any work-arounds for any stuff that APR
ought to handle.)
