For what it's worth, instead of messing with possibly voodoo PDM
structures, we maintain a user-defined options file by way of command
prompting with pseudo-CL variable names (like "&N" meaing "Item Name"),
using Process Commands QCAPCMD API.  The key trick is to specify type of
command processing value "8" in the options control block parameter.

>From the reference manual:

"8.  User-defined option.  This option allows a user to create user-defined
option command strings similar to those used by the programming development
manager (PDM).  It allows checking and creating a command string for future
use with types 0 through 3 execpt that variables are allowed.  The command
string produced may not be directly operable.  That is, if CL variables
were specified in the command string, the user must perform a substitution
prior to using the API with types of 0 or 2."
