How many DBAs do you have writing your business applications?  I suspect
there are far mroe RPG programmers writing business applications than tehre
are DBAs, and perhaps that's the issue.  Obscure SQL syntax is "normal" for
a good DBA, but from what I understand, there aren't all that many good
DBAs.  There are LOTS and LOTS of good RPG programmers.
