I thought of that....

However, can't you simply hard code the library of the security routine *SRVPGM?

ADDBNDDIRE BNDDIR() OBJ((SECLIB/SECURITY))

I'm curious as to why you say it makes sense to bind security
routines in by copy.

I do this kind of thing too ... when it comes to security routines, if you
bind by reference then the service program (or called program, for that
mater) could be put in a library higher on the library list and
intercepted.

If you bind by copy, it's impossible to substitute another program or
service program, because the module containing the security code is
embedded in the main program.
