All you need to do is to replace "res\scripts" directory. I didn't bothered to find out which files you need and which you do not as this directory weights just 5 MB. So no digging, just copy it whole.
1. Go to your WoT 7.3.
2. Go to res directory.
3. Backup current scripts directory.
4. Go to your WoT xxxx
5. Go to res directory of old WoT.
6. Copy old scripts directory.
7. Put old scripts into current version of WoT
Remember to revert it back if you want to play or watch current replays.
If I will be bored today I will write program that will detect replay version and change files accordingly to it.
For diggers: scripts directory contains item definitions, basically what made problems was IS-4 with S-70 while it was not possible according to 7.3 item definitions, also HP and speed was different in the past, but as S-70 still exists in game files there was no problem to just put script that contains Tier IS-4.
Disclaimer: I only tested 7.2 replay with elite IS-4 and it played without problem in WoT 7.3 after file switch. No other versions and tanks were tested.

Edit: I can only get 7.2 to work, 7.1 just crashes immediately as the login screen hits and 7.1.1 loads up to the battle screen but doesn't actually get into the match.
Double Edit: If I use 7.1.1 for 7.1 replays it also gets to the battle loading screen and loads, but doesn't actually get into the match either.
Triple Edit: I managed to install a 7.1 version and got my replays to work that way, so atm I'm satisfied. However for the future it would be nice to have this functionality without having to change scripts and/or have multiple versions. :(
