ASA Load Balancing different versions

We're currently running 7.2(3) on two load balanced ASAs. We want to upgrade to the 8.x train w/o an outage. Can an ASA on 8.0.3 and one on 7.2.3 participate in the same load balance group?

Re: ASA Load Balancing different versions

An ASA 5505 configured with dual ISP backup supports cluster-based VPN load balancing over the two Ethernet ports available in the Internet zone. The load-balancing scheme involves a "virtual director" IP address that is the destination of incoming client connections. The server that share a virtual director IP address form a cluster, where one cluster member acts as the cluster master. The master receives a request sent to the virtual director and redirects the client, using a proprietary IKE notify message, to the optimal server in the cluster. The current ISAKMP session terminates, and a new session is attempted to the optimal server.
