What are we going to do with it?

The first thing people are going to do with it is overhaul the graphics to include modern algorithms which will work with all the original game data! I own D3, D3RoE, both installed and can't wait! Of course, it'll take release +6 months before some enterprising hacker makes something truly great!

Modern algorithms... so that D3 is even blacker than pitch black?
Also, why make something "truly great" if the game needs modern algorithms. For 99% of projects there's UDK, which is infinitely more modern. You do not get source code access, but the amount of projects needing that isn't huge. For those that do need it, well, there's this, or Unity (which is probably more advanced at this point), etc.

Look at DarkPlaces. I'm no expert but I'm sure there's a graphics geek out there who has similar ideas for Doom 3! Compare those to the original looks: here (scroll down for Windows screenshots).
