I'd like a way to interactively set up the environment from a particular

that without opening the campaign editor and launch template editor and

In particular, you would want it to not clock the dataset split iterators...

and we would need a way to tell what part of the JobType command was the actual launch command, so we could wedge in something to dump the environment for a client utility like that...

Probably need to tweak it a little, then we can add a poms_client script that
modifies the result to echo the command we would run, and run an interactive shell there, and then run it on behalf of the user.

ssh -tx user@host '

lots of commands
' &

and then we can redo it with a /bin/bash -i in the middle and it works.

Having to escape any single quotes in the launch command and login/setup though.

Okay, so now you can click a link to get the launch commands text; you can copy and paste it into a terminal window, and debug from there.
