Yeah, probably we can use it.

I was thinking about using its output as goal, or at least rough goal. I
did not expect to extract any parts of it, may be have a look if something
in the paper is ambiguous.

The main obstacle as I see it is that most implementations pander to opencv
2.x or 3.x. And since they are mostly C-style codebases, it might take
considerable effort to change the interface. I believe the main issue is to
get layout-compatible views, and the rest should be easy. I believe I
should focus on items listed in my gsoc proposal, and afterwards we could
try that. In fact, I have a senior project coming up next study year, so I
have personal interest in doing it.
