No, just the latest three or four.

These are far from the earliest TECO, having undergone 10 years' development
beyond the July 1965 PDP-6 TECO described in MIT AILab memo 81 (available from
the CSAIL archives at MIT at http://www.ai.mit.edu/research/publications/).

Did Project MAC (best known product:Multics) borrow TECO from CTSS?
The Multics version seems to have been written (ported?) by Richard H.
Gumpertz; the earliest remarks from the PL/I source code:
01/23/71 at 0300 by RHG to add the G, :I, X, VW, and ? commands
earlier changes by RHG went unrecorded.

Dan Murphy wrote the original (Tape Editor and COrrector) for the PDP-1
which was contemporaneous with CTSS.
