Nice, looking forward to the new joint type. I had always thought the
slider was as pictured in the docs (but never really tested it).
I wonder how difficult it would be to code support for "jointed joints"...
that is, being able to use 2 types of joints without needing to insert an
extra body in between (which is sometimes not a realistic model of the
real thing). Of course, it's just a suggestion, in case someone is
interested and has time to give it a try :)
