Add a single VIEW to the DB2 for i Catalogue that shows all data dependencies between PFs, Tables, Logicals, Indexes and Views

No view, or combination of views, in the DB2 for i Catalogue that I am aware of can provide me with database relationships similar to what DSPDBR shows. The closest "catalogue type file" that I know of that has that is QSYS/QADBFDEP but that's not part of "the" catalogue I don't think.
