Well, the very name of the keyword should be a clue in itself ... :-)
I'm not sure it's entirely possible to eliminate unsafe code entirely,
particularly when it comes to things like, say, user-created classes or
trimesh data (that are created in the managed space but need to be
manipulated by unmanaged code), but the goal of minimizing it where possible
is a good one.

It would be great if we could get together a class structure on top of it

That was my thinking.  Since this effort aims to stick closely to the C-API,
it should be fairly trivial to convert OdeDotNet when the time comes.  Since
this project makes Tao.Ode redundant, there would be no conflict with
respect to OdeDotNet.

Great job Jason!
