Do you know the IPR status of the code? Their page initially said that
it was GPLed, but also asked for people not to re-distribute it, which
are contradictory positions. I wrote to them, but never received a
reply (second time this has happened) about this and all links to
the code disappeared within less than a week.

I downloaded it, but don't want to look at it until the IPR status has
been clarified, by which time it is likely to be rather out of date.

IPR = Intellectual Propery Rights.
