Given that the project was developed over 30 years ago, the developers who knew it and the whys and wherefores are either retired or dead. Chances are pretty good they don't even know the programming language used. It's not a case of the project being poorly documented. It's a case of bringing back the original engineers is a more effective way of making a change than trying to train up current staff to do it.
