No OpenDWG a FSF aparentemente é contra implementar uma lib livre para
um formato proprietário. Mas veja a prioridade posterior:

Free software to support RARv3

While not recommended for typical usage, especially when formats like
bzip2 and xz can provide high-levels of compression whilst supporting
free software, the RARv3 archive format supports split volumes, and
other features. The only free software presently available for it is
unrarlib, which can only read rar archives, not write them, and only
up to rar v2.9, not the now-prevalent rar v3. Supporting it will take
some effort, since the file format is not publicly documented, it will
have to be reverse-engineered from rar files.

"Free software is defined as software that respects four fundamental
freedoms: (0) freedom to run the software as you wish, (1) freedom to
study the source code and modify it to do what you wish, (2) freedom
to make and redistribute copies, and (3) freedom to publish modified
versions." Richard Stallman
