As I stated previously, I would like to contribute towards a free (GPL?)
model editor with collision, joint & physics properties.

I remember there being a big discussion about the physics format
problem in the past, but perhaps I could recommend a couple solutions:

1) Contribute a physics importer/exporter to ODE, so that physics
parameters can be stored/retrieved in an open format. Since the code
would be in ODE, it could be updated as needed.

2) Have the editor use a plugin-based system for storing/retrieving
physics parameters in it's file. It could use my #1 suggestion above
as a default, but could be swapped out easily.
