Erwin, I know you'd like to have a re-usable nodal logic system for
the GameKit but this is up to the author, since it also requires them
to license it under BSD/ZLib or similar.
There are loads of game projects around and I'm sure many need logic
editors so while it would be cool to have a re-usable one its also not
up to blender to provide.
First priority should be really good nodal logic in blender,
reputability, different language bindings, portability to different
engines etc are all an extra.
