That would be difficult. OpenVMS AXP can be done (but is not convenient 
- I've been keeping tabs on the Hobbyist distro and they're trying to 
remaster with v8.2, but it is slow).

v8.anything VAX would require acquisition of sources and backporting. 
VAX support stopped at 7.3 (boo, hiss, and all that I suppose).

BTW, excl. a better SSH (which can be done with Multinet or TCPware, 
see [they even have hobbyist licenses]) what are the 
advantages of v8 for you?
