I think the machine has some historical interest.  Barbara Liskov's CLU
group received a number of VS100 terminals for their VAX.  This prompted
Bob Scheifler to create X.  CLU even got X libraries before C.

X10 comes with software for the VS100 "version 3.10", but it goes into
RAM through the ROM firmware.  The other main concern, emulation-wise,
would be the blitter with its separate microcode.
