IIRC, the good news here is that the Tektronix terminal was just a
serial attached device that did its drawing with escape sequences that
are well documented/understood.  Many early X terminal emulators has a
tektronix mode, for example.  That makes emulation a little easier.

I hope that the 4002A is one of these beasts.  I recall seeing it on
an emulation list for a tektronix emulator I worked with in the early
1990's, but it has been long enough that the neurons may have
decayed...
