Original 45 minute score of first sonata

Someone said in a 2005 post here that the original score would be published soon. I searched with Google and can't find any mention of it, nor have I seen any performances of Youtube or anywhere else.

Is there any hope at all of being able to experience the full version of this sonata, or only the one that suffered 10 minutes of cuts? Knowing how much I dislike the vast majority of Rachmaninov's cutting decisions, I strongly assume the 45 minute version is superior.

Please tell me he wrote it down somewhere so, at the very least, someone might be able to reconstruct the score with very high accuracy.
