These are parts of my wish list:

Larry McVoy's Sourceware tape is discovered;
IBM donates the source and binaries for its obsolete Unixes;
HP donates the source and binaries of the Intel port of Unixware;
some of the late eighties/early nineties Unix CAD software gets donated.

Dreams are free, of course. I'm not holding my breath ... :)
