By the way, I am also working on continued field, but only this. I'm "basing" 
my work on the tn5250j code.
I'm supposed to finish it relatively soon but as my AS/400 knowledge is quite 
poor, my work isn't as fast as it should be.

We'll have to check to not have source clash. At worst my code just won't be 
used in the project.

Yes, me.  Though I haven't done more with it for some time.  I was 
working on continuous fields, word wrap, and cursor progression (those 
are the really fancy things that you're talking about, but still 
needed).  My work isn't in CVS yet because it is woefully incomplete (I 
decided finishing the HOWTO was more important).  I want to finish my 
current work with the scs2* programs, but I can send you what I've done 
in the mean time (that is if you want to hack tn5250).
