Please create a new filesystem that allows access to QSYS objects using a more "conventional" layout (i.e., not reminiscent of the AS/400).
e.g., Don't include object type in the name. Treat libraries and multi-member files as directories (no need for ".LIB" for ".FILE"), and single-member files and individual members of a multimember file as files. QSYS should not treated as the top level of the hierarchy.. it's just another directory.
If conflicts occur due to different object types having the same name, either an error can be thrown, or they can be differentiated by some convention. The key point is that this is a very rare occurrence, and not something to design a new filesystem around.
Source member should be exposed as straight text, with source line & source date removed.
In the use case examples below, this new filesystem is proposed as /QFS.
Do not place IBM confidential, company confidential, or personal information into any field.
