The plan (which is moving along at glacial speeds) is to make
a digital photographic copy of the VMS, that is, a collection
of TIFF files.  You will be able to see with high resolution &
full color what each page looks like.  I suppose the full set
of full resolution TIFF files will be circulated samizdat by
VMS students.  Possibly a reduced-resolution set of images might
be packaged for sale by some publisher, in either a single-CD
edition or a coffee-table-book edition.
