I didn't realise VAX ended with 7.3 and was hoping for a 7.3-2, had no
real need for 8. I have a fairly recent (last few years IIRC) consolidated
distribution and had anticipated that the current versions of various
things I wanted to play with (X.400 and X.500) might require 7.3-2, but
since there isn't one for VAX they can't! And can get round the ssh issue
if a v1 protocol version did ship with last TCP/IP for VAX.
