More Action Layers in the Logic Brick Editor?

Whilst working on Tom´s Adventures I ran into the problem that there is only a limited amount of layers in the action logic brick. I found out that you can only have 7 layers which is pretty bad if you want to layer a lot of animations.

Is there a way to get more layers, or a way to get around this problem?
Please let me know.

In Blender 2.71 the number of available action layers was increased to about 32,000.

Keep in mind, running a lot of animations at the same time might be very processing intensive. I wonder why you need that much.

Well it´s that the fighting animations for Tom are overlayed on top of the moving animations. So I think I´m going to update to 2.71 then ;).
Thanks.
