ACS RSS make CL prompting act more like CL prompting in SEU/RDi

CL prompting in SEU or RDi allows me to apply the default value and keep it in the code so that I can know what value is being used.

When prompting in ACS RSS and keying in the default value, the tool removes the keywords that have the same value as the defaults.

I want to have those keywords in the command string.


Use Case:

Open a Run SQL Scripts (RSS) session
type in cl:[your command]
Press F4 to bring up the command prompt dialog.
Fill out some of the keywords with non-default values and others with default values.
Press Enter.

Only the keywords with default values remain in the source.

I tested this in 1.1.8.8.

    Thank you for submitting your Idea to enhance IBM i Access Client Solutions (ACS). After evaluating your request, we understand its value. At this time, we will not be able to provide the exact behavior you have requested. However, we could provide an option for all parameters to be returned with their defaults set. You could then edit/remove the ones you do not want. Would that be an acceptable alternative?
