Has anyone used the MapIt software for adjudicating Diplomacy games?

In its list of Mapping Software, The Diplomatic Pouch lists a programme called MapIt.

I clicked on the option but it doesn't seem to work. I found another location on the internet which offered a similar version of MapIt: http://www.diplom.org/manus/mapit/

I'm not sure how to go about downloading the programme. Any suggestions as to how to get it to work?

At a glance, I see that there's a python file at the top. My first guess is that you need to compile that or run it through an interpreter (some of them are web-based) and the resultant program would make use of the .ps files as variants. Don't have the time to try it right now, but will later.
