Carmack's said that he'd be interested in updating previous id titles under the Doom 3 engine. I'd be all over that, especially if they sunk some time (or hired someone to sink some time) in the re-make, to make sure it came off awesome. Given id's reputation as a graphics juggernaut, I can't see them releasing a halfway done remake of Quake 2 with just shiny water and nifty lighting - it'd be something to see.
