Create bounding boxes (or whatever) for the regions that you want to
test, but don't use them for the world collision detection (you can
use the category or collide bits for this purpose if it helps). Once
you detect a hit on the capsule, then manually call dCollide() on
these sub-shapes to determine the area of effect.
