Yes.  I am entirely aware of that effort and have a copy already.  I
was more thinking of running the classic (c. 1984) Z-machine on
contemporary hardware, for the sole fact that at that time, I had a
PDP-8, but lusted after a PDP-11 (I bought my first one in 1986, the
$300 I wrote about recently).

This is entirely a nostalgia thing.  Nothing practical about it.
