Maybe the *PGM message queue for QCMD in the current invocation stack
(or the current request processor)? There are some little tricks that
can be done with messages that are not common knowledge. Maybe that's
one of 'em. I had to figure out how to emulate a S/36 cancel back in
another life, and discovered that if I sent an escape message to QCMD,
the whole stack evaporated like magic. With the addition of a small exit
program to handle cleanup, it worked like a charm.
