It seems to me that test_ode is similar to the ODE internals (the
physics part, not the collision, I mean) in that it's pretty much a
black box to most people on the list.
It might be considered useless in that no-one uses it's output, but
that's because no-one is currently fiddling around the physics
I think that it's best to keep the test around, at least so that when
someone comes along who'll want to work on the physics internals,
they'll have a test harness, or at worse it'll serve as a hint that a
test of the physics part is necessary. Of course, since the current
tests fail on some points and are ignored, it kind of reduces that
last point :/
