I think newer versions of HPUX are a little better.  Since most of the
HPUX resources available (snake-farm and HP Test Drive machines) tend
to be 11.x+.  But very few have access to HPUX, Irix, or AIX.

I wouldn't say I have an interest in HPUX beyond the fact that
I'd like to see it work and have access to some boxes. :-)
I can try to make some time available to help.

If so it would probably be for HPUX 11.something.
