I'm sorry to hear that - you might have been wasting your time (but
then, perhaps not).

We decided a while ago that the regular Python releases will not support
VAX/VMS any longer. So any code you write has zero chance of being
integrated into Python (the same holds for m68k code, BTW).

That said, you are free to maintain your own branch of Python. In that
branch, you can make whatever changes you consider necessary, but you
will be on your own.

Kind regards,
