For DB2 Force, allow for execution of SQLs prior to the SELECT
There are many times when we need to execute some SQLs prior to the actual SELECT that will unload the data. This could be as simple as SET CURRENT SCHEMA TO XXXX; (if we are using secondary auth id, the default schema of the tables can not be specified by the currently supported SQLID (via GLOBAL OPTIONS block) or SET CURRENT REFRESH AGE TO ANY; (to use MQT); or SET CURRENT APPLICATION COMPATIBILITY xxx (to use new features not yet generally available) or CREATE and INSERT rows into a GTT and use those rows as a driver for the UNLOAD SELECT, add an audit row in a table to keep track of when an expensive SQL was executed, etc. A post-processing SQL execution feature would also be nice. Perhaps a PRE-SELECT END-PRESELECT and POST-SELECT and END-POSTSELECT blocks. This would allow for multiple Unloads to have their own customized pre/post processing
