I think there's a certain amount of work that could be done on it to clean up things that are obvious to fix (e.g., xstrings) or that are no longer desired (Tek mode). This would at least save future people 2 weeks of thinking they might get somewhere.
Beyond that, I suspect that there's some stuff that could be salvaged, which could be used to make a new program that works as well. charproc.c seems to me to be a relatively clean ANSI escape sequence processor (relative to, e.g., the kernel's console one...).
