Right now Brasero is currently re-licensing the library again, we
already contacted the people involved asking about the change. There
were some bits in the library that Philippe re-wrote (that used NCB
code) to be compatible with SJ and RB.
So we still expect to have all this done (of course with Bastien help to
review our patches :) ) before the deadline. We have been working harder
to accomplish all new features and deadlines.
