In some respects, it's required, as the old technology disappears or 
becomes hard to use.  I've done a few such projects for the C64:

C=Key: A converter that allows one to use PS/2 keyboards (including the 
much loved Model M) on your C64/128/VIC/etc.
uIEC: Use CF and/or SD cards as drives on your CBM machine.
