Speaking for my contributions from the CodeFactory time, I am quite sure 
  they are minimal and probably not even copyrightable? It looks like a 
  build fix, and a very small crash fix in the glib mainloop integration 

Anders' code on the other hand is a problem, I don't think anybody knows 
who owns that code. This is what Ryan Lortie said in the original thread 
about this:
