Sound parts were horrible enough to need complete rewrite anyway (probably converting the music to .mod or similar format).

I don't think that doing straight ports/exact conversions (a la tiertex & co.) is really an interesting task, there should be some added value in the new versions, like smoother animation, more colors, fixed gameplay, extra game elements, you name it.
Well sounds great and good luck Sir
