I doubt anyone can say, especially with Xorg not even being sure what the next
non-maintenance release will look like, if it will be based on the current
monolithic tree or a modular tree, or when it will be. If Xorg decides to go
with the modular tree, the answer will probably be never - there's no reason to
do it in that case, just leave it as a separate module, easily buildable and
loadable by those who want it.
In any case, I'm pretty sure no one at Sun is working on either the technical
effort to do the merge (which is small, given that it's already in a branch),
nor the effort of convincing everyone else that putting it in the main Xorg tree
is a good idea (which is not small, given the bias towards Xft/render that many
people have), both of which would have to be done to get it in.
