Aha!  Thanks for that background info.

I still remember the conversation I had with my boss about running Eunice 
on their Vaxen:

Me: "It makes VMS look civilised."
He: "No, it makes it look like Unix."
Me: "That's what I said!"

Dunno what happened afterwards, because I was attracted to a commercial 
opportunity which paid much more and needed my Unix skills (otherwise I 
would've been supporting ancient COBOL programs).
