Status of UDF driver on FreeBSD?

I've never given this any thought, until I recently bought a Blu-ray 
drive, and realised that I can neither mount commercial Blu-ray discs or 
watch the films with mplayer. As I understand the problem, it is because 
FreeBSD has no support for newer versions of UDF and that Blu-ray films 
use UDF 2.50 or 2.60. I did find some suggestion for a Summer of Code 
project to port the NetBSD implementation of UDF, and that that has 
support for newer versions, and also write support. So my question is, 
is there any work being done on this, and if so, what is its status?
