No, you can't use it. Since he didn't put it into the Drupal CVS in the 
first place, it doesn't inherit Drupal's GPL. And since there is no 
LICENSE specifying otherwise, it defaults to a copyrighted work by the 
original creator, which means we can't use it whatsoever as the basis for 
new updates or code. He'd have to publicly relicense it under the GPL 
before we'd be able to update/CVS, etc.
