    What about TeX and MF?  Do you (or does anybody) happen to know what
    current distributions do?

No undump support for a long time.

    I do still want to learn how to do it

There's a support/undump program on CTAN.  As you'll see, it hasn't been
updated in many years.  Some of the really old distributions in
ftp://tug.org/historic/ might have references to it.

Emacs is probably the only place to look for handling modern systems.
(And Emacs has some peculiarities which didn't apply to TeX, and vice
versa, as I recall.)
