Add Option to Migrate Datasets that were Recalled as Part of a Scan

Please add an option so a user can specify that the LAT job submitted migrates any datasets (thinking archive log datasets here) that it had to recall to complete the scan. An example would be where a user attempts to scan multiple days in the past. This will require many archive log datasets to be recalled, and that could affect storage pool free space. When the scan is done, the datasets will remain on DASD until an external process migrates them back off or the user manually does so after finding all the datasets recalled in the job output. We would like to see an option where a final step in the LAT job issues HMIGRATE commands. Thanks.
