I must admit, I did not.  Primarily because I was trying to keep my
message very short and not ask for much.  From my Googling around
while searching for a valid email address, I could see that he no
longer appeared to be programming (he is, in fact, the CEO of
Formspring[1]), so I figured the briefer and more to-the-point my
message, the better chance I had of not getting relegated to the spam
bucket.  Also, I figured that, since the latest version is from 2002,
whatever repo he might have (if he still had it) would have to be
converted to git anyway[2], so why not just use the gitpan version?
Anyway, that was my thinking.

[2] As, you know, git didn't exist yet back then.
