Yes, both the papers (the one using the CPS transform, and the newer
one I pointed you to) do that.

No, that's standard with research papers: they describe an algorithm
but there isn't enough space to include the source of the
implementation.  But Jay's message in this thread points you to a
version of the implementation for the newer version, which I think is
a lot better than the older one (based on CPS).
