Agreed - and in any case, use embedded SQL instead of RLA.

Well, I'm primarily looking to use it with iSeries Python, which can
use either SQL or "dynamic" RLA (i.e. chain/read-style access but no
need to know anything about the file before run-time). (Actually, if
using RLA and the decimal places are not needed, then it doesn't even
need to do any lookup in the first place, because the field types and
sizes are directly accessible as attributes. The omission of a
decimal place field attribute is unfortunate.)
