Having played I think all of the foot charts on BM3, I can assure you that having a foot pedal as a gameplay element on beatmania isn't really that great. I suspect there's a reason it died.
A normality test:

If you are no longer connected to the internet, you need to apply more wax to your modem: it'll make it go faster.
If you find this funny, you're a nerd.
If neither of the above apply, you are normal. Congratulations.

The foot pedal lives on in EZ2DJ which has had a release as recently as last year. I saw several people playing it in Korea who were quite good at it and it was pretty impressive. I'm not sure, but I am under the impression that the pedal is optionally available in every song.

Personally, I was terrible at it and it caused me to fail songs that were otherwise not all that hard. I found the positioning of the pedal (which is similar to BMIII) to be somewhat awkward. I always felt off-balance standing at the machine in such a way that I could operate the pedal. Perhaps with more practice I could come to enjoy it...but I don't see myself having such an opportunity (nor am I highly motivated to create one).

I don't really mind the pedal in Beet III but I don't understand why Konami never made it a 7-key game - it really felt like a step backwards.

Ugh, you know what a shitty beet moment is?

Getting the most perfect random on Scripted Connection [a] and still failing with a 72% God damn it.
