Just a short note on the first 2 points.

No, it doesn't depend on OpenGL at all.

Those are not part of ODE, but of the external, OpenGL-specific
one can use with ODE :)

Well, the Hinge-2 joint allows very easy spring/damping setup. Perhaps
you wanted to implement your own spring system because the Hinge-2
didn't seem to fit your needs at first glance, but I think you could
achieve that with this joint as well.
