Funny enough, Warner Archives just announced the three-hour cut of Superman! Even if WB wanted to, I'm not sure if they would have access to the negatives to do a complete restoration on the unused material. I'm guessing the original film elements are in Hong Kong, with whatever company acquired Golden Harvest.

The 'Burbs had a FANTASTIC release by a UK distributor a few years ago, which included a workprint sourced from a VHS tape. A similar release would probably be the most realistic way for the Barron/Menke edit to ever see the light of day.
