Which makes it just as interesting:  Instead of IBM moving objects between
ASPs, they're allowing objects from multiple ASPs in a single library!

And now, a bit of conjecture:  As I've read more about RCLSTG, I've got the
impression that all objects on the AS/400 are contained in a single master
list, a kind of 'super library.'  This explains how an object can become
'detached' from its library, yet still exist.

An entry in this list consists of the same information you see in a WRKOBJ
or DSPLIB list, plus the library name:  LIB/OBJ/TYPE/etc/etc.  Plus,
there're entries for all the libraries themselves.

RCLSTG scans this list, looking for entries that have either an invalid
library name, or no library name.

So tell me:  Am I way off base with my assumption, or have I guessed at one
of IBM's secrets??
