Position cursor display attribute is badly needed.  I just wish IBM addressed
this  situation.  The AS/400 community has requested this ever since the program
to system field was conceived.  This will really eliminate the use of indicators
in DDS.   What good is the &FIELD when you also have to use an indicator to
position cursor, this kinda defeats its purpose.   Also, program to system field
should be made available in the buffer (so idiots like me will know what I
passed to it in the first place :-) )
