I think a better way to do this is to have the different versions of 
the API as a different module.

The current BGE module is 'GameLogic' (or however the capitalization 
is) - perhaps the new could be .. 'game' or 'bge' or 'blendergame' or 

So old scripts could continue working as they are, per Erwin's request 
- use 'import GameLogic' and get obnames complete with the 'OB' prefix 

New / ported scripts would do 'import BlenderGame' or something and get 
ob references, have .name without 'OB' prefixes etc. and all the other 
sane things.

Would be clean - the old api would be just what it is, no mixing of 
such diffent behaviours for different versions etc - could be kept 
around for possible 2.49 at least as it is (possibly with bugfixes 
applied to there too).
