Once upon a time, I had an MI program for the /38 that found the
name of the JOBQ that your job was submitted into.  I have no idea
if it still works, or if there's an API that does it nowadays...

I can find the source if you're interested, but I'm pretty sure it
had a hard-coded entry into the job table...

I used to use it for just this reason: our system was taken down for
backups at 19.00, and I wanted to easily see if I remembered to 
transfer into QCTL or not.  I put the "subsystem" name on my
menu.
