Remove "circumvent control technology designed to limit interactive capacity" verbiage from PTF cover letters.
Since the reason for products like "FAST/400" has disappeared can they please remove the following verbiage from PTF cover letters? <snip> Application of this PTF may disable or render ineffective programs that use system memory addresses not generated by the IBM translator, including programs that circumvent control technology designed to limit interactive capacity to purchased levels. This PTF may be a prerequisite for future PTFs. </snip> This scares some people from applying PTF's because they do not know the ancient history of this. I really hate to give fuel to the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" crowd.
