Blender Cycles Game Engine integration?

A couple of days ago I came across this: . I became curious and was excited for the prospect of this coming in and doing for the game engine what Cycles did for the Blender internal renderer. While this engine still has a lot of work that has to be done on it, I was wondering of there was any word on integrating this as a branch into Blender already or if that is even being discussed at this time. Does the development team even know about this at this point in time? Any information related to the topic would be useful. Thank you.
