This is the core of what digital archaeology is all about. The fact that you found traces of earlier versions of the game that were possibly going to support some other features is something that would only have been possible through a disassembly. I think he would get a kick out of how far we can go to reconstruct the exact programmer's intent from the mere BIN image.

I don't know what the policy at Imagic was. Bob Smith maintained his original source (including his Parker Brothers game). It would be interesting to know whether Rob still has his sources, but I doubt he does. So maybe Rob would see some value in getting his source back, so to speak.
