I have run the upgrade assistant, and I agree that it was a good move by 
IBM. My point was that if IBM was to provide a CISC emulator on the RISC 
machine customers would not have to wait until the vendor supplied a RISC 
ready version of the program. It may be slow, it may be kludgy, but it 
would work.

Why don't you just run upgrade assitant before upgrading and find out how
many non-observable programs there are before. I have been doing
application certification on V4R1M0 and found this useful. This could be a
good time to perform some spring cleaning of your libraries. I feel that
this upgrade assistant was a good move by IBM.
