QSYS2 is primarily used for cross-platform objects that come with OS/400 but
do not start with the letter 'Q'.  As most users expect IBM to only use 'Q'
prefixed objects on AS/400, these non-Q objects are placed in QSYS2 which
hopefully makes them easy to get out of your library list if their names
happen to collide with application derived names.  (and yes, there are some
QSYS objects that do not start with a 'Q' but that doesn't change a primary
reason for QSYS2)
