there are probably a few around, but i know of none (i snapshot the tex
archive, but i've not snapvaulted it, so at the cambridge ctan node it's
gone for good).

accessibility of old versions is likely to be difficult.  it's not a
trivial job creating an ftp repository that remains safe from slime
balls united, inc.

your best bet is to ask on comp.text.tex or one of the tex mailing
