[ODE] Performance comparisons between different physics engines..

For completeness sake I thought I'd mention this:

It doesn't have nearly the variety of joints that ODE does, but otherwise
Tokamak has a simple api and the performance seems really good.

the v1 api is now free, and they're working on v2.

Wow, the Meqon engine seems really stable. 
Look at the brick wall movie: http://meqon.com/movies/brickwall-divx.avi
Even if a ragdoll is thrown against the wall a few times some boxes fall
the wall remains stable. No little jittering like a get with ODE.

I would be really nice to have such stability in ODE. Now I can only
that by disabling bodies. But then you get things like the lower part of a 
wall collapsing while the upper part hovers in the air.
