You can start scratching a .h file (that could be a patch to dwg.h,
actually) with some function prototypes, not the code itself. dwg.h
has some api-like functions already.

Take a look at this GRASS plugin [0] that I wrote some time ago, it
should give you a user perspective. You can also look at the DWG part
in QCAD 3.1[1][2]. They use Theiga (new name of OpenDWG non-free
libs), which has a very ugly API, but that might give you some insight
as well.

In fact, after taking a look I didn't find any DWG related code within
QCAD's git repo, despite they saying that the DWG plugin would be
included without the Theiga library. Anyway, the DXFLib API [3] might
be a good start. Just be cautious and avoid bloating the API.
