Precisely my view, as I said a couple of days ago. If there is some
way to 'stabilise' the plastic so it doesn't go brittle or just fall apart
on its own then I would consider trying it. But not a cosmetic colour
change that will not make my VT100 or whatever last any longer.

Which would be, I think, totally useless for an object which is going to be
handled and used, like most classic computers here.
