Wow, this is pretty cool. I wish people would do things like this more often.
More often? Stuff like this is done all the time. See Dark Places, Doomsday, JDoom, Quake II .NET, etc.
Those would all be games for which the source code was released.

...and Duke Nukem 3D, Deus Ex, System Shock 2, Temple of Elemental Evil, and Vampire TM:B just to name a few more.
Except for Duke 3D, I don't think there's source code available for these ones, but I'm also not sure what kind of mods have been made. (I gather that the community-made V:TM:B patches are pretty amazing, mind you.)

Even so, what has been done here is on a whole different level to your typical game mod. Radically changing the control scheme of a game by hacking the binary is incredibly impressive work.

"Stuff like this" is almost never done.

I also can't think of a better game for it to have happened to!
