I have a few for the VAX tree... :-)
Both arff and the dmf32 driver are encumbered, but both are more or less
needed by some NetBSD/vax systems.
Another, rather high on my wishlist, thing would be the Ultrix MSCP

But apart from some VAX (and Ultrix) things, I can probably live without
much of the old cruft.
