Here's a thought. It is just a stream file, right? Are there any pase or
qsHell commands that have such a DOD parameter to delete a stream file?

I don't know OS/400 internals, but is the stream file of a fixed allocated
size and always on the same part of the hard disk for its entire lifetime?
Does reclaim storage or other operations ever move files on disk the way
windows defrag does? Even if all that and any other things i'm not thinking
of is true, Those qshell commands are going to have to be able to write to
every byte in that file 7 times (or whatever DOD standards are currently)
and your going to have to guarantee those were the only sectors on the hard
drive that contained this clients data.
