how about releasing TM desert demo 1.2.5 from 2004 as retro sidegame?

Hi all,
I really enjoyed the TM desert demo 1.2.5. gameplay.
The masterserver for that demo shut down some 13 years ago with no further info nor replacement, while it was a small but active community back then.
It was basically a TMO desert environment alpha, with restricted blocks and 5000cr max - like a C64 if you so will.
The community back then has created thousands of maps for that (demo)-game, and i have some of it archived.
I now managed to make run that demo again in a virtualbox winXP on xubuntu and loaded up some of the old minimal tracks - it worked quite good and the tracks were fantastic in their minimalism, like early 80s synth music.

now my question: could nadeo please release that demo without starforce copyprotection in a renewed package maybe as a kind of:

"Minimal Desert early age TM" retro spinoff?
