IBM i Access QSYSOPR: display the job log of the sender job.

When I'm reading messages in QSYSOPR I often need to see the job log of the sender job. The qualified job name is already available in message property, so I think it's very simple to add an option.

Use Case:

Very helpfull for errors investigation.

    Thank you for your request for enhancement. While we agree this would be a nice feature, it did not make it into our current development plan.

    The CAAC has reviewed this requirement and recommends that IBM addresses this requirement and view this as a low requirement. It would be a nice ease-of-feature.
