Is IdentificationEngineOn configuration option used, and if so, what for?

I have been using this library for many years (since 2008?) and it has worked well for me, up to now. (I implemented the _localIP connection so that when working within a VPN where the mainframe will assign LU's based on the other endpoint (local IP) it would work.)

Now, a new configuration on the mainframe that I am connecting to requires that “Read Partition Query" (via Write Structured Field) be supported that responds with the terminal capabilities. (See: http://www.elook.org/computing/rfc/rfc2355-31.html )

It appears (while looking at wireshark output) that this library does not implement this.

I wonder if the config parameter IdentificationEngineOn (which defaults to false) was originally intented for this purpose but never implemented.

Has anyone implemented the "Read Partition Query"?
