SunTour XC Pro with Shimano 8-speed Shifters?

Has anyone tried using a SunTour XC Pro (or XC Comp, XC Expert, XC LTD) rear derailleur with Shimano 8-speed shifters? There is no obvious reason to think that it would work, but I still wonder...

No, I haven't used that. But I did use XC Pro thumbshifters with Cyclone RD and that actually indexed on a 6 spd Shimano FW!
