Over the past 20 years, ILE for RPG has gone from being something new and startling to being almost legacy. Lots of us are now using RPG ILE concepts on a regular basis. But what about CL? Can it be ILE too?

Everyone knows about ILE for RPG.
Or at least everyone knows how to spell it, and a lot of people have adopted ILE practices as part of their regular routine. But I don't think the same can be said for CL. While most of us are now doing our programs in QRPGLESRC versus QRPGSRC, how many of those same people are still using QCLSRC for their Command Language source? My guess is quite a few.
