I've been scanning through the current outstanding patches and I came
across this one from 2005. It seemed like a good feature that
obviously someone wanted, and the supplied performance analysis seems
to indicate it is a good choice for some scenes.

So to help out, I took the supplied files and turned it into a patch
against SVN #1175, i.e. a much more modern code revision.

There is still work to do to free it from a dependence on OPCODE
(which doesn't seem like a huge job) and another job to implement

Another job is to implement collide2 (space vs. space collision) which
has been seen as a deal breaker for adding this to ODE - I'm not sure
this isn't such a bad thing but I'm hoping that the original author or
some kind volunteer might step up and add this and solve the issue :-)

The patch lives here:

My file addition didn't seem to bump it to the top, and I'm not sure
who spends any time watching the tracker, so I've posted here to draw
attention to it!
