Does "all other stuff" include Retrieve Object Description (RTVOBJD)?
For lack of an [documented] indicator revealing the object was locked
exclusively, I would hope not, as the information that is from the
object rather than stored separately in the OIR could not be correct;
e.g. the size can not be materialized in one thread\job when another job
holds that object with an exclusive lock. As well, any interface that
is not properly using the *EXCL lock as a semaphore for access to the
OIR will [albeit unlikely but still] potentially provide Incorrect Output.
