As said previously, there is already a IPv6 stack with BSD interface available.
(And HP itself has a Unix-based stack for VMS)
We can not do VMS-specifics like
status = SYS$QIOW(0,net_chan, IO$_SETMODE, iosb, 0, 0,
&lhst_adrs, 0, 0, 0);
instead of socket(2). (I suppose socket is implemented by QIO).
A FreeVMS implementation will be QIO-based.

Do they have any VMS experience?
