    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM.  I have reviewed it with my team and believe it is technically possible.  Unfortunately we have not seen significant interest in pipes on distributed systems since they were released and have seen less interest on the z/OS side.  Because of that I must decline this enhancement request.  I do appreciate you taking the time to open this however and please don't hesitate to use the tool to request other enhancements that you think we should consider.


    Sincerely,

    Chris Sanders
