very interesting! i worked briefly for a failed cad startup, and the dwg format was the bane of our existences. (we didn't try to reverse engineer it ourselves, we relied on an unfortunately buggy library we purchased)

In commercial settings I would still use OpenDWG/Teigha. But open source CAD programs will surpass them all eventually.
