[ODE] PosR - a better way?

As to new interface functions detracting from "clarity", look at the
existing functions, all of which would be unnecessary:
In particular, I think SetInfo is a particularly ugly hack to try to get
the collide function to work properly with offset geoms. I also think
that an explicit GetOffsetPosition is clearer than GetPosition returning
either the real position or the offset, depending on whether the geom
happens to be sitting in a container (its not polymorphic on the _type_
of geom at all). However, it seems we have a difference of opinion here.
Does anybody else have any input on this subject? Are there people who
would want this (perhaps as a patch), assuming I get around to changing
it on my build? Or in fact, is the consensus that the current
GeomTransform interface is better?
