The Python version of the server is actually the second version. The original prototype was written as a LambdaMOO application server, using Stunt as the server. It worked really well, but design changes meant that it no longer fitted the design of thickishstring and so it got rewritten.
Thanks to the magic of version control systems, the source is still available; it makes an interesting example of using LambdaMOO/Stunt as a pure app server, rather than as a traditional MUD.
Installation instructions are in the README.
