There is a patch on source forge which adds support for 16bit indices
to OPCODE. I think Geoff Carlton wrote it - anyway, I agree that it
would be a useful feature as 16-bit indices are typically very common.

Can someone review the patch I mentioned and see if it's good enough
to put into the main ODE branch?
