To be honest I don't know. I'm not the one who wrote that code.
But I've asked them and learned that this issue is mostly solved. We
need to update a few things (e.g. using the WDK 6001) then we can make
the code part of VBox OSE. So I'm asking for a little patience since
such cleanup work isn't really high priority. I'll let you know when

See above. Hopefully done in about a week or so.

For contributions there's a wiki page describing the process:
Contributions are always welcome if they actually improve things. What
tests did you run on your implementation? Getting a filesystem
bullet-proof is hard work...
