This is the latest version on the Wayback Machine I could find.  Would it be appropriate linking to this, or hosting the ack.el file on the beyopndgrep.com site itself?

It should come out of the docs entirely. I certainly don't want to stick a 9-year-old Emacs file that I can't do anything, must less maintain, in the ack repo.

I made a ticket. https://github.com/petdance/ack2/issues/628 Thanks for bringing it to my attention.
