.. which is a pretty neat trick, since S/38 did not have a *USE
authority.  (I know, I know but just for the sake of the joke.) :^)

Hmmm... not sure about this.  I am farly certain it was not considered
when I was migrating S/38s to AS/400s, but that was before some of you
were in Jr. High.  :^)  How would that work with adopted authority, I
wonder?
