It's bit-rotten since its last update here, but the work has found a home in DOSBox ECE, DOSBox-X, DOSBox Core, and DOSBox Staging.
For SVN, I'd suggest using the latest state of the patch used by ECE - it was last modified here: DOSBox ECE (for Windows & Linux)

Exactly; if you're only playing existing GoG (OGG Vorbis) encoded CD-DA tracks or mounting BIN/CUE's, then the extra codecs add no value.

Right; there was some mild refactoring done, but certainly nothing "make or break" in terms of performance.
Hope that helps!
Edit: added DOSBox-X; thanks for the reminder @Wengier!
