Best options for Kinect motion capture?

I’ve heard bits and pieces here and there about motion capture with the Kinect to animate characters in Blender. I’ve heard Brekel tossed around a few times, but that was before Microsoft released the PC dev kit. Are there any good applications done or being developed to bring Blender and the Kinect together?

No one has any ideas? It seems that Brekel requires some Autodesk app as an inbetween. Is there anything that can do directly from the Kinect to Blender?
