[ODE] Moving an island of bodies around by setting a position

   I'm trying to put an island of bodies connected by joints in my app, and it would make my life a lot easier if I could move the whole island around by setting its position.

   I realise that you can only use ODE bodies with joints if they are attached to another ODE body, or the world (i.e. NULL).

    This means that the entire island of geometries all need to have bodies, and hence can only be moved around by forces.

    Has anyone else needed to move an ODE body around by setting its position?

    Is there any way of doing this?
