We will make it as compatible as we can at least with the
sensor/controller/actuator system. The only thing which we will not
make compatible is the use of python scripts as the CS/CEL python API
is fundamentally different.

I have a question here. I have been looking a bit at the
sensor/controller/actuator system and it seems like it can be fitted
pretty well to the CEL game logic system. There are a few things
missing in CEL but those can be added. On the other hand, CEL has some
stuff that can't currently be done with the current blender system. Is
it possible (through python preferably) to extend the number of
sensors/actuators/controllers so that you can make a python plugin for
blender that adds new stuff in those comboboxes?
