DB2 Connect 9.5 accessing DB2 z/OS 7.1

I have a client that is running DB2 z/OS 7.1 that would like to upgrade
to V8.1 and beyond. One task holding them back is upgrading DB2 Connect
which happens to be at V7.2 FP6 which does not support DB2 z/OS 8.1.

DB2 Connect 9.1 will be EOM on 1/21/2011 so I would rather go with
something more current such as Connect 9.5 but it's not documented as
working with DB2 z/OS 7.1. I was wondering if anyone is running DB2
Connect 9.5 connecting up to DB2 z/OS 7.1 and if so have you had any
issues with that configuration. I don't plan on running this very
long, only long enough to get to DB2 z/OS 8.1

Thanks for the help in advance!
