If I grant *EXCLUDE to '/' to a user, that user can still signon to a 
workstation session and perform tasks in the library file system, e.g., create 
a data area in QGPL, delete the data area, run menu options, etc., although 
WRKLNK '/QSYS.LIB/...' fails due to authority. I don't know that /QSYS.LIB 
access has much to do with normal green-screen operations. That is, I'm not 
clear on the difference between /QSYS.LIB and library QSYS.

Doesn't /root authority only have general significance when access is via a 
directory-based file system? Perhaps even FTP would be allowed depending on 
NAMEFMT.
