VMS for Itanium?

This week's announcement that Compaq is abandoning the Alpha platform brought some other interesting news: Compaq will also be porting VMS to the Itanium. The newsgroups have been buzzing about this one (check out comp.os.vms); many are pessimistic. I think it'd be pretty cool if it happens, but will the challenge be too much? Both the VAX and Alpha platforms were designed with VMS in mind. The Itani(um|c) wasn't. Will it swim or sink?
