Star Wars: Original Trilogy on DVD!

The Guardian reports that LucasFilm has decided to release the original Star Wars trilogy on DVD this September:
Star Wars purists might be disappointed to learn that the box set will feature not the original theatrical releases but director George Lucas's 1997 special editions of the films, complete with extra technological tweaking and added footage. The announcement comes as a surprise, given that Lucas had originally planned to wait until Episode III was ready for DVD before releasing the originals. But Lucasfilm is now hoping that the DVD release will fuel anticipation for the release of Episode III, scheduled for May 25 2005.
Many people were hoping for the original not-so-Special Editions, sans digital add-ins ... I wonder if there will be a fan-released Star Wars Un-Edit taking as many digital extras out as it possible?
