forget the help text (I only included that as a curio) . My testing
shows:  if I make a system-state program in the user domain
then it cannot call a user-state program in the same domain, it 
can call an inherit-state program.
So, how can QCMD call my user-state program?
Now QCMD is in the system domain so maybe system domain
system-state programs can call user-state programs in the
user domain. All this can be verified by testing, I just thought
that someone in this august body of list lurkers knew to spare
me the testing.
