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

I don't know, but there could exist a function like "dSetJointPosition".
If you move all bodies and joints of an island by the same distance, i 
think it would work.
try it and let me know how it works ;-)

if you want a body moving to a point in space and some other joint 
bodies following
(i.e a gravitygun, which pulls a human body to the player) i think the 
best way
is to set the body's velocity directly in the dircection you need.
ODE will make the joined body following the "leading" body.

bye and goodnight ;-)
