Has anyone tried connecting an X10 alarm panel to LinuxMCE via X10?

I'm looking at this panel:
BMB SC28X Home automation/security system http://www.letsautomate.com/12469.cfm?CFID=2206304&CFTOKEN=9d6833-a3b705a5-22fa-4de5-906b-53335be074da
(which duplicates a number of functions of LinuxMCE, I know)

and connecting it to my LinuxMCE 0810 core either with a CM11/12 or 15. But I think you can only have one X10 "controller" and therefore both the CM11/12/15 and this panel would not both be able to control/sense things, is that right?

I have two X10 controllers and a zwave controller in my setup, no problems. (CM11, CM15 and Zwave USB)
