Deploy data sets to multiple target PDS

For deployment to production of our online load modules we have a situation where two different target PDS are involved, one for runtime (GITZ.PR2.ONLINE.LOAD)(and on for nightly deployments (GITZ.PR2.NEW.ONLINE.LOAD).  

When deploying to PR the user has a choice of moving directly to runtime or to release through the night routine. For the nightly deployments all the content of the .NEW. PDS is moved to the runtime PDS. This happens every night.  

So when using the night routine the load module is only moved to the .NEW. pds BUT when releasing directly to runtime we need to populate both the runtime PDS and the .NEW.. 

Alas - we have a use case where we need to deploy loadmodule to two different PDS. We wish this was supported by UCDs plugin so we can utilize its functionality.
