Havn't the jobs, by definition, been inactive for the value of the system
value?  I havent had any problems coding a program
to "deal" with the jobs.

The problem I saw with QINACTITV, back when I tried to use it, was that
messages were issued for each job, not once, but each time the timer
expired, with no indication of how long that particular job had been
inactive.  I found it a nuisance.  But your mileage may vary.

    Create a message queue to get the messages, and change the system value
for QINACTMSGQ to that message queue. Then you can hang a message handling
program in that message queue, and decide by user, workstation, or whatever
scheme seems reasonable.
