In the GUI world this is done differently. You 'select' numerous objects,
then from some pull down menu you modify the properties on all of them.
Granted, you may not have access to all the properties in a 'change all
selected' environment. But, in general that's how it's done. The only
problem with this is that the GUI tool often has to have a motivated
development team to keep up with the enhancements on the back end. For
example DB2 adds some new property on the database and updates the
associated command (CHGPF for instance). But the GUI team is lagging
behind in adding the new parameter to the tool.
