Yes - it's in the "freemap" directory. BTW before I do anything else I'm 
going to tidy up the code, there's a lot of experimental stuff in there at 
the moment....

I'm not averse to converting it to Ruby, so if there is a need to do it 
I'd be happy to myself. On the other hand I am keen to extend the features 
of the existing code (e.g. customisation - see Etienne's post)
