Using the word "antiquated" is rather baiting the bear.
If you need a hierarchical file system you can use something outside of
the qsys.lib file system.
As others have said, does SQL server, or other DB2 wannabes, support
hierarchical data for their data accessed via SQL?
There is something kind of like this. Not that I've played with it. But
independent ASPs (or IASP) might be an option. However, I think that puts
you into the "one or the other" category.
