Interesting, did Jeroen use his own software to extract the SDNA? 

The readblend library can extract all information from any .blend file as 
well. Here is a proof of concept, that reads the .blend in memory, and 
converts the triangle meshes, textures, Bullet physics objects and current 
camera position to Irrlicht+Bullet. Next on the todo is converting logic 
bricks. Main purpose of this project is to have a BGE player under the 
ZLib/BSD/MIT license, without (L)GPL parts. 

(only a Win32 precompiled binary, an OSX universal build will follow soon)
