Marvin's 3D Cartoon on DVD?

I wonder if the good people at Warner Home Video will ever be releasing the state-of-the-art 1996 3D short "Marvin the Martian in The 3rd Dimension" to DVD anytime soon?
It is a 13-minute, CGI-animated adventure directed by Douglas McCarthy in which Marvin mistakes Daffy Duck's cheapo space movie to be a genuine intergalactic threat.The short film was a main attraction at Warner Bros. Movie World in Australia and later moved to Six Flags Great America theme park. The film was accompanied by various special effects including water and wind which would correspond to the screen (ei: Daffy spitting while speaking).WHV has been releasing past Looney Tunes compilation films to DVD with extra animated shorts as special features. The next on the list should be "Daffy Duck's Fantastic Island" (1983). Will "Marvin the Martian in 3D" be included? Hopefully, the current trend of 3D animated films will lead the way to the short being released sometime soon.

2.)Father of the Bird (1997)
3.)Chariots of Fur (1994)
4.)Carrotblanca (1995)

I kinda doubt that Carrotblanca will be released since it's already available on the Casablanca DVD. (A great film btw, and a great cartoon...)
