Default USDA legacy tomato seed

I apologize if this is general discussion, but it seemed to fit better here.

I've been reading the pages of the USDA seed library. The process for requesting seed seems pretty straight forward. Has anyone tried it recently who can share their experiences?

What I'd like to try is asking for four differ ascension numbers and sharing seed with other growers. A project similar to the Dwarf project or the Karma Pink effort., except instead of creating new OP stock we'd be rescuing (or trying to rescue) legacy tomatoes. And instead of picking new names we'd be researching to figure out what we had.

Is there anyone else out there who wants to make rescuing a tomato from possible oblivion a New Year's resolution?
