I have GOT to learn to keep my mouth shut.  As it turns out, there's not
one, but TWO interfaces to worry about.  FILE STATUS gives you the INFDS,
but CONTROL-AREA is an alternate location to get the function key, display
file name and record name.

How bloody lovely.  And it seems that unlike the INFDS, which requires an
ACCEPT to get updated, the CONTROL-AREA is updated magically upon certain
kinds of I/O (hopefully a READ).  So now I have to add conditional code to
my READ emulation routine to see if CONTROL-AREA was specified in the
flipping FILE-CONTROL paragraph, and if it was, to add a call to an API that
fills the control data structure.

I am happy, joyous and free.  Really I am.
