Good question.  By not saving the access paths, we are opening ourselves to the 
real possibility of the system needing days to rebuild access paths when we 
restore the library to the other system.  If we DO save the access paths, will 
v3r7 restore them *and* still have to rebuild them (i.e., take even MORE 
time?)?  There was also the issue of whether it would fit on one tape so the 
guy picking up the tape in the morning doesn't have to take the first one out 
and wait for
the second tape to finish, although that likely would not take long.

At this late hour, it appears that we are going to change the files with 
non-critical APs to MAINT(*DLY) before the save tonight, SAVLIB ACCPTH(*NO), 
restore the library on the target system, let the restore rebuild the *IMMED 
access paths
and wait for that to finish before we change all the files with MAINT(*DLY) 
back to MAINT(*IMMED).  Our best guess right now.  At some later date, we'll 
test the v4r4 to v3r2 to v3r7 save-restore to see if access paths get restored 
too much elbow grease on the part of the system.
