I doubt there's anything nefarious about the silence, it's probably just
that the few (two?) people who know the answer aren't keeping up with the
list.  But, just for the sake of conversation:

I've run into a problem with a car that I built with ODE, where when it
gets beyond a certain speed, the wheels start to oscillate.  They bounce
around, translating erratically within their plane of rotation.  I've been
wondering if the 'finite rotation' stuff would help with this, but I
haven't looked into it yet.
