PROC PLM: read contrast and estimate parameters from a dataset

Currently the only way to pass the parameters of the contrast, estimate and lsmestimate to PROC PLM (and others) is as code. This is inconvenient when the parameters are generated elsewhere in SAS, as they may be for example by PROC IML's ORPOL function. Another example where it is inconvenient is when the effect has many levels and interactions or combinations must be entered: these could more easily be produced semi-automatically and then read from a dataset. Please add some consistent way to read these parameters from a dataset in all procedures which have these statements, e.g. PLM, MIXED, GLM, etc.
