I just heard word from the mediaLib team that September is the planned date for
releasing the full mediaLib code to the public under the CDDL license.  Just an
update since I pinged them based on your query.  They are excited to hear that
people from the opensource community are interested in using their code.

Yes, I'd agree that Sun is getting bit by the fact that the Xorg migration is
taking so long, but I'm not sure how much faster Sun could move on this issue. 
The problem is that Sun has a lot of internal dependencies on the existing Xsun
Xserver (Sun Ray for example) and getting everyone to migrate to Xorg has been
a slower and more painful process than you might imagine.  But the light at the
end of the tunnel is finally starting to appear, though as I said, I think it
will likely take another year for things to really switch over.
