Hi Matt,

It would seem that a PHP upgrade caused some sort of problem.

I don't think the code has been maintained since 2002. However it is  
open source:
http://dev.w3.org/cvsweb/p3p-validator/20020128/

We don't have resources right now to maintain this; perhaps someone  
from the community would be willing to have a look.

I've also cc'd Yuichi so he knows.
