RCX motors / touch sensors work ok

FWIW, I thought I'd let everyone know that the old RCX 9V motors and touch sensors work fine with Lejos on the EV3. I've been using the NXTTouchSensor, and NXTMotor classes to access them, with cables wired using the instructions in these videos:

I haven't tried the active sensors (light, rotation), but I'm guessing they don't work as the underlying support isn't there in the kernel modules. (I imagine it would be theoretically possible with changes to the GPIO code, but nobody seems to be going that direction with the EV3 kernel modules)
