That sounds exciting!
I wish we had more stuff of the v0-v4 era, but I don't know how
likely that is to even still exist.
Also the things that were documented in the manual but weren't in the
distribution...old troff is something that comes to mind. We still have
the source filenames in deleted directory entries in the v6 distribution.
